Hey, david . . . Definitely appreciate the response!

I actually got rid of this error.  I'm using kernel 2.4.18, so I set most of the required kernel options (make xconfig) BEFORE I installed the RPMs.  For some reason, this seemed to cause this error.

So, I simply enabled loopback support, and left all the others at their default values  --  things are rolling-along FINE now!

Thanks again . . . John.

Please send the cluster_mkintird you ran, so we can see the options.
 Also, send your /etc/clustertab.  If you know how to get it, send the
linuxrc that is in your ramdisk.  Which network device are you using for
the cluster?  Send your /etc/modules.conf also.
