Coda is an advanced network file system, similar to NFS in that it enables you to mount file systems of a remote server and access them with regular Unix commands as if they were sitting on your hard disk. Coda has several advantages over NFS: support for disconnected operation (e.g. for laptops), read/write server replication, security model for authentication and encryption, persistent client caches and write back caching. If you say Y here, your Linux box will be able to act as a Coda *client*. You will need user level code as well, both for the client and server. Servers are currently user level, i.e. they need no kernel support. Please read <file:Documentation/filesystems/coda.txt> and check out the Coda home page <http://www.coda.cs.cmu.edu/>. To compile the coda client support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called coda.
