I'd be quite interested in doing this. MkLinux has been flaky for me so 
far and I have been working thru some issues (mostly networking things) 
but I am certainly going to try to get Coda going. Do you suggest a 
version earlier than 4.6.1? I have not been following that discussion 

I am also anxious to work on the NFS port. Have you run into any other 
interested parties for this?
