In the guide on, it says that:

To get DRBD, you need to enable the universe component for your preferred Ubuntu mirror in /etc/apt/sources.list

What does this mean? In my sources.list everything is already uncommented. Do I need to add another repository? Thanks for the help.

Simply: look for the lines that say "universe" at the end, something like this:

deb lucid universe
deb-src lucid universe
deb lucid-updates universe
deb-src lucid-updates universe

They're enabled by default, so you should be fine to just run the install.
