Hi David,

It sounds like you may need a couple things.  First of all,
you probably need the gfs-kmod rpm.  If you're going to use
this in a cluster, you'll need some clustering software as
well, and that depends on the version that you're running.

If you're running RHEL5.x, Centos5.x or similar, you'll need
to get some more rpms, like cman, openais, etc.
If you're running RHEL4.x, Centos4.x or similar, you may
need some more.  I've got some basic step-by-step instructions
in my NFS/GFS Cookbook, located here:
