The first thing a 5.3 client does is try to connect to the servers
listed as 'rootservers' in /etc/coda/venus.conf and asks for the name of
the rootvolume.

The problem can be caused by several things,
    - it cannot resolve the names to valid ip-addresses
    - there is no server running on any of the listed 'rootservers'
