They are not weird, have you tried to use pts to examine all your  
entries? Take a look:

milicchio:~$ pts listentries
Name                          ID  Owner Creator
milicchio                  10003   -204       1

milicchio:~$ pts examine -204
Name: system:administrators, id: -204, owner: system:administrators,  
creator: system:administrators,
   membership: 2, flags: S-M--, group quota: unlimited.

milicchio:~$ pts examine milicchio
Name: milicchio, id: 10003, owner: system:administrators, creator: XXX
   membership: 7, flags: S----, group quota: 20.

I'd suggest as well to look first for a stand-alone client (even  
under VMWare or another emulator), and install AFS server and client  
from the documentation step by step.
