[OpenAFS] install problem under Redhat

AFS requires a kernel module which must be compiled for your specific
running kernel.  You probably downloaded the RH7.2 RPMs, which
obviously don't contain support for the RH7.3 kernels :)

You have two choices:
        1) install the openafs-kernel-source RPM and build a module yoursel=
        2) wait for the OpenAFS 1.2.4 RPMS (which are building as I type)
