I've followed your instructions, plus removed the RPM's and haven't been
The "make coda.o" (from that tarball) won't build the driver, so I did "cd
linux2.4; make coda.o" and it built. Then "make install" installed it to 
/usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/fs/coda and I've copied it where you
suggested. Then I had to reinstall the rpm's because venus-setup is inside

dmesg says:
Coda Kernel/Venus communications, v5.3.18,

But venus still says:
10:20:19 Coda Venus, version 6.0.5
10:20:21 WorkerInit: Version Skew with kernel! Get a newer kernel!

Can you send more detailed instructions on how to install CODA in a
linux kernel 2.4?
