This simply sets the rootservers and cacheblocks parameters in

This is done all the time, Coda doesn't care except if your routing is
broken and you can't ping the machine by it's own fqdn.

Yup, venus setup just sets vales in the configuration file. You need to
run 'venus' or user somethings like /etc/rc.d/init.d/venus.init start or
/etc/init.d/coda-client start to get the ball rolling.

This is unrelated to venus not yet running, you also seem to be not
running the auth2 daemon that handles authentication requests. And
probably are also missing rpc2portmap, updateclnt and updatesrv.

Try something like /etc/init.d/auth2.init start, and
/etc/init.d/update.init start.
