My first guess would be a side effect of confusion on my part.  I
assumed that you were sending email to the freebsd-stable mailing list,
and the major number I gave is for FreeBSD.  If you are running a
different OS, your major number would be different.

I assume that you ran venus-setup as root...

The next step I would do is to find where the message open failed for
/dev/cfs0 is produced and change it to explain why the open failed (then
send in the diffs as a patch).

Keep in mind that I have been running Coda a week or so, and there may
be others here on the list who have other ideas.
