Or look at  <http://grand.central.org/numbers/systypes.html>

Note, however, that those sources only list the "canonical" names which are 
used to describe platforms which OpenAFS supports (or which AFS supported 
in the past).  While these are also the default values for the '@sys' 
variable, you can make @sys expand to whatever you want using the 'fs 
sysname' command.
