The kernel support code (relay), has been folded into venus. So relay
doesn't need to be started separately anymore. Unmounting is best done
while venus is running by using 'cfs uk' (unload-kernel). Once venus is
not running and N: (Coda) is still mounted, use 'unmount N:' to get rid
of the mountpoint.

There are still some problems that we are working on. For some reason it
is not possible to open office files directly from Coda, double clicking
them gives either a blue screen, or an error is reported by the office
application. Copying them to the local disk/desktop with explorer, and
then doubleclicking works.
