We haven't started using in a production environment yet, but have used
Open AFS on W2k with Novell Client.  Other than an issue with some accounts
with long passwords (the password in question was 10 chars, presuming doesn't
like stuff over 8), we were able to authenticate (e.g. with accounts w passwds
less than or equal to 8 chars).

There is an authentication related issue that can be resolved with certain 
patches, see e.g.
I believe it has to do with whether you are able to use certain hooks into
Windows GINA or not, don't recall details.  Anyway, we needed these patches.
(Also note, I do not believe are in the WinNT binary distribution, at least
wasn't last time I looked).
