Fedora Core 2, yeah that is one of the FC releases that didn't include
the kernel module. I think FC1/FC2 and possibly FC3 need the kernel
module to be build from the linux-coda sources.

It seems that 'linux-coda-6.5' is doubled in the paths to the linux-coda
source tree, not sure why. But I think that the real problem is that we
are choking on the embedded space in the "coda installers" directory name.

Could you try to run,

    make CONFIG_CODA_FS=m CPPFLAGS="-D__KERNEL__ -I/home/g5/coda\ installers/linux-coda-6.5/linux-coda-6.5/linux2.6 -Iinclude -include linux/config.h INSTALL_MOD_DIR=kernel/fs/coda -C /lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/build  M=/home/g5/coda\ installers/linux-coda-6.5/linux-coda-6.5/linux2.6

It is a bit of a long line, but what I did was add a '\'-escape in front
of the spaces for the "coda installers" directory name.

Alternatively you could rename the directory to coda_installers and try
to run make again.
