Subject Snappy Load Error

Hi, I'm building a new cluster, and having problems starting Cassandra. 

RHEL 5.9
Java 1.7 U40
Cassandra 2.0.2

Previous clusters have started fine using the same methods, although the envoronments are
a little different (new RHEL, older Java).

I am installing from DataStax tarball, and after making, I think, trivial config changes for
our environmnet, start things up with bin/cassandra. The system log then shows this error

INFO [Thread-2] 2013-11-29 09:43:02,434 (line 135) Listening for thrift
INFO [HANDSHAKE-/nn.nn.nn.nn] 2013-11-29 09:43:02,962 (line 386)

Following this, there seems no communication between nodes (nodetool only shows the local
node on each server).

Any help very much appreciated.
Thanks, Nigel
