We actually played with this.  Clearly a computer using Coda needs a
disk.  So our model was to allow a small amount of stuff to reside on
the local disk, enough to get the cache manager going.  

In the later stages of the "init" process, we would "chroot" to /coda
(or somewhere below it). 

Michael Callahan and I were the first to try it, and it worked, then
Keith Winstein went further and actually got it going I think. 

If you search on Coda list between June and September 1998, you'll find
the messages.
