THX, no problem for the RVM which is raw partition and not fscked. This
point about custom inodefs for Coda was what created some confusion.
There is some discrepancies in the documentation on this. I know there
is a project to review the doc, so, maybe people involved should take
care of it. I haven't read the full thread about this project, but if I
can help I would be glad to. I just completed my setup with Kerberos 5
authentification, it is basically working, will start some testing.
