Thank you for the help. I now see the coda kernel module that had been
loaded [lsmod]. I am presently trying to create a volume that can be shared
and I am encountering an error.

#createvol_rep / <>
Failed to dump the current VRDB into /vice/db/

Any suggestions please?

Thank you,

modprobe coda should be able to load it if it is installed correctly.
With insmod you have to specify the full path to the module.

To get the module loaded automatically at boot on FC3 I needed to add a file
/etc/rc.modules that has to be executable (chmod 755) and contain the

    /sbin/modprobe coda
