Hi all,
I'm trying to install an afs client (I need only the client) on mandriva 
2006 linux. In particular:

# uname -a
Linux 2.6.12-12mdk #1 Fri Sep 9 18:15:22 CEST 2005 i686 Intel(R) 
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz unknown GNU/Linux

In the release page there isn't a rpm for this distribution.

My first attempt was to install the rpm I found on the contrib mirrors 
on the Mandriva distribution, but I failed because, at the end of all 
the other problems, i cannot find (or understand which is/how to) the 
module to load into the kernel.

So I tried to download the sources from www.openafs.org, and, following 
"INSTALL" instruction, I did the usual configure+make+make install

And now?
The documentation i downloaded in the same page seems completely 
uncorrelated with the things i'm doing, because they speak about a 
cd-rom, but I don't have it! I downloaded the sources!
Refering to this documentation, i'm at the step "Loading AFS into the 
Linux Kernel", but where can i find the dir "modload" to copy in 

Moreover I'm a bit in trouble because all the attempt I made inserted a 
lot of different "afs","afsd","libafs"..etc files in the whole 
filesystem and all is confusing. Luckly, i made this last attempt in a 
different day, so i can distinguish the newest files by date, but when i 
launched the "make install", all the compiled material should be 
transferred to their specific dirs. Which are these dirs? (I launched 
configure without options)

Thanks a lot
