This is correct. Actually, MkLinux and LinuxPPC are 100% binary
compatible. The only problems might be in the kernel code, but all the
filesystem code in mklinux is exacly the same as in 2.0.34. I have an
mklinux machine and a linuxppc machine. 

I also got coda to compile, and anthony should have the patches I used to
make it work. If anyone here wants them, let me know, however I would say
that the patches aren't quite in a state to be included in the coda src ;) 

Now I just need to figure out how to get it to work... I'm trying the
client on linuxppc but venus refuses to start. I guess I should read the
docs and figure out if I need to set anything else up. ;)
