Thank you guys for all of your immediate help!

My machines are currently down for other reasons so I'll be able to try things 
again, send out the errors I'm getting and such in a day or so (hopefully!)

thanks again!

Subject: Re: Cluster Configuration Issues

You might try my ZooKeeper configuration generator if you have python 

The main issue that I see with your config is that each config file 
needs to contain a list of all the servers in the ensemble:


where the "myid" file in the data dir for each hostX corresponds to it's 
server id (so myid=1 on host1, myid=2 on host2, etc...)
