That's perfect. So I can use OpenAFS for movies, and coda for mp3s.
That way my server won't be bogged down unless it's serving a movie.
An in-car xbox mp3 player and any laptops etc can play mp3s from their
local coda caches, my favorite tunes always available whether I'm
connected to the home network or not....
