I assume you didn't use the actual string "cellname", but rather used
the name of your cell (probably "depauw.edu", based on your email

Can you show the output of 'tokens' before you try to move this?

Can you try this from the VT-1 console and see if you get an oops?

You should be able to just recompile the kernel module using the
sources in the openafs-kernel-source.  Just be sure that you install
the "24.2" release, and not the "24.1" release.

You could, but you shouldn't have to.  Recompiling just the kernel
module should be sufficient.

Yea, this _may_ be the 2.4 SMP problem.  I don't run 2.4, nor do I
have an SMP machine, so I have no way to test this.
