    tar -xzf linux-coda-6.0.0.tgz
    cd linux-coda
    make config
    make coda.o
    cp linux2.4/coda.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/fs/coda

It does need the correct kernel headers of the currently running kernel
to get the exported symbols right and things like that. That is a bit of
a pain, and I'm sure that in most cases make config will be unable to
figure everything out automatically.
