We are using Windows ME and Windows XP on some of our workstations. I tried
to get both clients running, under Win ME and Win XP but had no luck:

Win 2000 Client does not install at all under Windows XP when chosen other
language than English, otherwise throws some errors, finally installs
somehow and somewhere but doesn't connect.

Win 9x/ME client installs without problems, but won't connect.
Here's what the logfile of the ME client says:

(11:20: 3-960)Socket Connect
(11:20: 3-960)AFS:StartupMicrosoft wsock32.dll, ver2.2, 32bit of Jun  7
2000, at 21:34:15.

(11:20:49-880)OnAfsEvent AFS Client timed out, failure to respond
Check Network Connection.
(11:20:49-880)AFS Client timed out, failure to respond
Check Network Connection.

Tested on three different machines. Network connection itself is ok, TCP/IP
stack works. Linux clients can connect to server and work fine, so it's not
the AFS server itself. No useful entry in syslog on server. Are ME and XP
supported at all? Other possible problem sources known?
