I saw this recently when someone came to me trying to get OpenAFS
to work on an NT machine (which also had the NetWare client, though
I'm not sure it affected the problem).  We discovered that the
installation did not have a correct current CellServDB file;
I don't remember where I figured out to copy it, but it worked after
I did it.  We also, like Brent, could map the system:anyuser read
area of AFS to a drive letter without authenticating.
