M guess is that coda.sys is the NT's kernel module for Coda, which is
using the FSDK toolkit.

I am looking at an XP machine that Phil was using the last time he
visited CMU. I can't really find which cygwin version is installed, but
it has "perl 5.6.1 built for cygwin-multi".

The machine seems to have XP with SP1 hotfixes, Microsoft SDK Update
August 2001, Visual Studio 6.0, Windows DDK 2600, and a Windows XP
application compatibility update Q319580. As far as I remember this
setup is based on a fresh install.

Yay, just found the cywin version number, it looks like it is
