Coda File System

coda client a7 on XP (services won't start)

Like it says in the Readme, here's my problem report.

I've installed codacli-a7 onto a WInXP machine.  Cygwin is installed to
C:\win32\cygwin.  The XP machine has service pack 1 and is running Novell
client software (in case that matters).

rebooted, ran a cygwin shell and attempted to start the services:

> $ net start coda

> The coda service was started successfully.

> ajft_at_NBK-9978 ~
> $ net start venus
> The venus service is starting.
> The venus service could not be started.

> A system error has occurred.

> System error 1067 has occurred.

> The process terminated unexpectedly.

The system event log contains

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	Service Control Manager
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	7034
Date:		31/10/2002
Time:		1:04:43 PM
User:		N/A
Computer:	NBK-9978
The venus service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 1 time(s).

Any ideas on how I can proceed?  Is there anything more recent than alpha7 to

I foolishly tried to do a "net stop coda" after this, it resulted in a blue
screen and instant reboot!

ps: I'm not on your codalist, so please cc me a copy of any replies.
