I have just gotten Mklinux setup on my Mac and am going to try to get it 
to compile on this machine. I have also been talking with Peter about 
doing an NFS to Coda 'port' (?) although I think the work has stopped on 
the MacNFS client (the GNU version anyway, I don't know of any commercial 
clients...) so that might not be too helpful.

I asked Peter about working on a Coda client for the Mac at Linux Expo 
and am still willing to work on it if others are interested in helping. I 
know it's probably a higher priority for the Coda project to get 
NFS->Coda to work because that would make Coda available to many people.

BTW, Peter I'm not dead or anything, I am trying to get through a 
database project/upgrade that is causing a serious drain on my time. I 
have read through the Venus paper and understand most of it. Hopefully I 
will be able to get started en masse in a week or two.
