I'm getting the hang of this stuff now, and so have a general question 
and a specific problem.

Is there a particular way to migrate a filesystem to Coda?

I have several GB of maildirs in a compressed tar file. When I try to 
untar (to venus on the SCM), it gets a ways before giving me "File too 
large" errors. But the SCM has plenty of space.

[root_at_uhura home]# df -kl

coda                    100000         1      9365   1% /coda

[root_at_uhura home]# cfs lv /coda/

Can I bypass venus, or manipulate cache size somehow?

Also, how to I make sure the data is replicated to my second codasrv? 
Ie. venus on the second codasrv could really just be looking at the
