     184The prototype MDA services have been implemented by CNRI, using these components:[[BR]]
     185 - A hosted Linux OS server that includes multiple services[[BR]]
     186  - One User Workspace (UW) Srvc for each user, a Linux OS environment with a file system, etc.[[BR]]
     187  - A common Directory Archive (DA) service, which runs in the Linux server has has special privileges so that it can read and write the directories of each user.[[BR]]
     188 - A separate and common Digital Object Archive (DOA) Srvc.[[BR]]
     189
