Coda File System

First attempt at installing Coda

I have a couple Linux (Redhat 5.2, kernel 2.0.36) boxes that I'm
using to *attempt* to try Coda.

I've downloaded the most recent Coda rpm's, 5.0.1.

One is configured as a Coda server, very meticulously, according
to the directions. It is also a client. I can successfully start
venus on that box, and cd /coda to look around.

However, I cannot "clog" or change my password. No matter what I
do, I always get "Invalid login (RPC2_NOTAUTHENTICATED (F))."
I believe I have followed the steps for setting up authentication
carefully, but obviously something is not working right.

On my strictly client box, I try to start venus, and I get an
endless stream of

GetRootVolume: can't get volinfo for root volume (/coda)!

I know there is a volume /coda, because I can look around in it
on the server/client box.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any clues as to where I have
gone astray? What additional info should I provide?
