thanks for trying to help me. Especialy to Robert V. Baron.
In a way, I am happy to see that someone else got the same probleme: I am not so stupid :-).

Anyway, we have to migrate to linux ( debian). I am not saying that linux is better than FreeBSD.
But now the guy here only know linux. So I prefere build solution with OS he have good knowledge.
Expect to see my linux/coda 5 problems soon. :-)
