AFS works OK, but is proprietary. CODA, when last I checked, was pretty
scarily experimental, but might be better than caution suggests.
I agree, on the whole, with Bryan, that you might want to try Higgen's
client NFS v. 3 patch, and that FreeBSD makes a fine NFS server. But
you'll need to try for yourself, and see if any or all of that meets
(I have a patched 2.2.14 kernel -- strictly other people's work -- that
you might try, in http://linuxmafia.com/pub/linux/system/ .)
