This contains the long expected VxD's which Michael Callahan contributed
to Coda.  They are licensed with the GPL.  I have removed all code
copyrighted by other parties (I hope I didn't break something).  The
README.95 in the zip file should give enough information to get off the
ground - I have included a short list of the most urgent things to be
done.  Let me know if you attack something, then I'll be really nice to

We get this going to the point that Venus starts and mounts Coda on a
drive. Many other things work, but something is broken in the directory
code which prevents one from doing "dir" or much else for that matter.
Also the IOMGR_Select (which pretty much calls select in a different
thread) is broken: the program "test" in lib-src/mlwp already displays
these problems.  This bug blocks retransmission of RPC2 requests and makes
everything very fragile at the moment.

To build the VxD's you need the 95 DDK from Microsoft, as well as other
stuff such as visual C etc.

To play with Coda you also need our cross building kit and remote target
gdb debugger:

You may also find the tcpdump which knows a bit about RPC2 useful.

Apart from the cross building kit, this is source code only.  It's no way
close to working well, so we won't distribute binaries yet.

Let me know of problems and successes!
