config CODA_FS tristate "Coda file system support (advanced network fs)" depends on INET help 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.
