Eep, no failover should have occurred if you don't have fencing.

You need fencing hardware with RHCS4/RHEL4.  I'd check ebay if you're
not looking to spend a lot, you can get a WTI NPS115 for pretty cheap
nowadays (under $100!).

You can run with manual fencing, but no automatic recovery will occur,
and this isn't a supported solution.
