Your debian packages, not the Debian ones IYSWIM [g].  I meant the 
protocol version or whatever - maybe I'm wrong but I got the impression 
that the module in the announcement was for coda 5.x.y.  Then again I've 
seen several versions of most things so perhaps I was mistaken.  If so 
please pardon me!

As I said above I wouldn't expect you to track that!

It's what you get with Knoppix, but I've gone to a Debian kernel now. 
And it's working.

OK, sure, it's just that the 4-year old docs refer to venus-setup.  A 
newcomer like me has to navigate lots of stuff like that.  Anyway, I/ve 
got a working client now and am near to sorting out the server, so if 
you can bear it please humour me for a little longer - and I'll be able 
to help field other newbie stuff for you!
