The concept of "cell" is not yet implemented in Coda.  It will
be a very useful feature, and we look forward if someone 
can work on it. (I am not the guy who knows the most about
any recent developments of Coda.  Ask Peter or Jan for update.)

The file /usr/coda/etc/vstab on a client defines what servers the client
is talking to.  Among those servers, only one can be the SCM.  I think
it is defined in /vice/db/scm in each of the servers.  (I believe
that /.scm -- a symlink --and /vice/.scm are obsolete now.  Correct
me if I am wrong.)
