Coda File System

Help on server setup

I'm trying to set up a brand new system with Coda, and having some problems.

I have the Coda client installed, and Venus can access just fine.

I am now trying to set up a Coda server on the same machine.

Starting from a clean system, I ran the vice-setup script, placing the DATA 
and LOG partitions in separate raw disk partitions.  (20M log and 200M 
data)  /vicepa holds the files, and it's mounted on a 4gb ext2fs.

I ran createvol_rep root E0000100 /vicepa

I then configured Venus to use my local server, started it up, and received 
the following messages:

Any suggestions on how I might cure this?

I'm running under RedHat 6.2, using the coda.o module supplied by RH.
