Coda File System

codasrv hanging indefinately

I've just set up a coda server for my home on a i386 Linux 2.2 machine.
When I run codasrv.init start, codasrv is started and starts using 100% of
available CPU. The howto says that codasrv does a "fsck-type" check on
boot, so I waited for awhile to see if it would finish. After three
hours, it was still using 100% of cpu (BTW, 15% user and 75% system). It
never gets to the point where it has completed booting and other clients
can connect.

Coda looks cool, I'm looking to use it instead of NFS for my MP3's and
sharing home directories accross machines. I'm not really in the mood for
repartitioning the drive on my server though. What is the effect on
performance of using files and directories on the normal ext2 filesystem?
I'm not planning to do any signifigantly intensive tasks, mostly streaming
of MP3's and accessing files (I hope to have everything cached, at least
on my laptop so I can take advantage of disconnected operation). The LAN
is 10mb and there will be a max on one simaltanious client actually
accessing files.

Server version is 5.2.7.

Here is as far as the log files get:
