Be specific.  What do you mean by "won't work"?

Global drives are not mounted as the user, they are mounted by the user 
that the AFS service daemon runs as, user SYSTEM.  This can cause some 
problems for some applications.  AFSCreds is a GUI that comes with the AFS 
client that runs under the user's account.  Drives mounted by the drive 
letters tab of the AFSCreds interface are mounted as the user.  Depending 
on where you are mounting in the AFS tree, you may or may not need to be 
authenticated first.

Are you authenticating before you try to mount the drive?
Does the directory you are trying to mount have valid ACLs for the account 
you've authenticated as?
Do you have the correct cell information in AFS_Config?
