Can I expect to have similar problems?  I was hoping to demo Coda for
the Cincinnati Linux Users' Group in a few weeks, and I was hoping it
would be something I could install in an hour or two.

I expect Coda will be really, really important for a lot of people in
the near future.  The combination of replicated servers for reliability
and disconnected clients will be a true killer app, uh, filesystem.  :)

Some things I'm wondering about:
- Can I mount a Coda volume on an NFS server or Samba server for the
benefit of those peons who don't have the Coda client stuff on their
- I know Coda handles authorization a little better than NFS, right?

I read the mailing list, but I miss a lot.
