I don't have the seven RedHat distributions here, neither do I have
Mandrake (and the harddrive on our RH-sparc machine died).

The kernel package version number does not necessarily have to match the
current Coda package release. I'll just strip the trailing zero (and add
a -1 revision number), linux-coda-6.0-1.tgz contains the source code to
build a Linux-2.4 kernel module needed for any coda-6.0.x client.

They are in place now, but I'd be surprised if there is a client-server
version skew. I don't like breaking compatibility all that much as it is
often easy enough to simply introduce a new RPC for new functionality
while keeping the old RPC for older clients (for a while).
