You shouldn't have to explicitly mount the coda.root volume, the client
asks the server for the name of the rootvolume, which the server looks
up in the /vice/db/ROOTVOLUME file.

So check if that file actually contains the name 'coda.root'.

If it does there must be some other problem, check the logs
  /usr/coda/etc/venus.log or /var/log/coda/venus.log
  /usr/coda/etc/console or /var/log/coda/venus.err
