I mean.  it looks like the drive is there, but not in AFS space.  in properties
the drive "type" is RAW. Also, no files in the directory show up nothing can be
created either.

Yes I am authenticated,  I have tokens..  and yes the ACL's are validf too.

"it" works when I use the  Linux AFS client.

I just  setup a clean install, Windows XP with SP2 and nothing else on a
machine. I installed the windows AFS client and have the same problem.
