I would suggest getting the system booted as you probably have now over
NFS (root mounted NFS for example), and then just running 'venus' in your
startup script. Remember you'll need a local hard drive in the system for
the coda cache, so you wont be able to have a true diskless system.

Perhaps NFS could be eliminated if you use initrd and a ramdisk with
venus and everything else you need to get the coda mountpoint up?
