You can use the rvmsizer to know how many rvm you are using....
And $>df | grep vicepa...

That show that you set up venus with a local cache of 20M on the scm and 
something like 200M on the servers.
Pay attention to the fact that venus cache size should be at least the 
bigest file size you will acces in coda-fs...
You should perhaps consider increasing a little bit venus cache size on 
the scm...

If it was you original test-disk, stop coda, increase you partition 
/vicepa as high as you can....
You will need to run vice-setup again and say good by to your data in 
( vicesetup wipe up data )

If it's a new disk create a partion of 40GB, mount it on the unix system 
as /vicepb and run vice-setup...
