Does Anyone know how I can get Linux to read Coherent
File systems? I remember seeing someone was looking for volunteers
to try a patch to the linux kernel to do this. Where is the patch
and how to I apply it? Please speak slowly and verbosely.

There are patches on ma2s2.mathematik.uni-karlsruhe.de by Bruno Haible
that should make you able to read/write coherent filesystems under linux
(along with some other sysv formats). Check the directory
/pub/linux/sysvfs, and in case of problems, mail me or Bruno
