I=B4ve read the book from Gehrke&Milicchio and it is nice and useful.
But it is not really OpenAFS specific, it is more like "how to setup a
complete infrastructure for a company with OpenAFS, krb5,....".
And its done with Debian as examples.
In my eyes the book is useful if you want to set these things up, but if
you have a running system and just want to know some internal stuff,
choose another book ;-)
