RHEL uses udev by default, and by default /dev/watchdog doesn't exist at
boot time. It kernel does attempt to load the module if /dev/watchdog
exists with the correct major/minor and you open it. The problem in the
init script is that it attempts an insmod which fails, and then it tries
to find the minor in /proc/misc which it can't find, and then tries to
mknod the device but due the previous error doesn't send mknod enough

You are correct. Do you have any gdb commands you'd like me to run?
Heartbeat 2.0.0 is no longer installed on this machine but I do have it
on installed on a test box.

Ignorance on my part, I was pretty sure that wasn't the right setup but
I've been running like that for a long time under heartbeat 1.0.3. Are
you saying I should pick one or the other? This is a dedicated ethernet
card for the heartbeat.
