[OpenAFS] Problems setting up an initial AFS cell...

I'm trying to set up an initial cell, using a Fedora Core 5 install
on a VM (this is a fresh install; the only thing I've done is pull
the new tzdata via yum, no other updates.)

Here's what I'm doing:

# rpm --install openafs-1.4.2-fc5.1.i386.rpm
# /usr/afs/bin/bosserver -noauth &
[1] 2194
# sleep 5
[1]+  Done                    /usr/afs/bin/bosserver -noauth
# ls -l /usr/vice/etc
total 8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Mar 22 10:50 CellServDB ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Mar 22 10:50 ThisCell -> /usr/afs/etc/ThisCell
# /usr/bin/bos setcellname vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com ut.vandyke.com -noauth
# /usr/bin/bos listhosts vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com -noauth
Cell name is ut.vandyke.com
    Host 1 is vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com
# /usr/bin/bos create vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com kaserver simple
/usr/afs/bin/kaserver -cell ut.vandyke.com -noauth
# /usr/bin/bos create vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com buserver simple
/usr/afs/bin/buserver -cell ut.vandyke.com -noauth
# /usr/bin/bos create vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com ptserver simple
/usr/afs/bin/ptserver -cell ut.vandyke.com -noauth
# /usr/bin/bos create vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com vlserver simple
/usr/afs/bin/vlserver -cell ut.vandyke.com -noauth
# /usr/sbin/kas -cell ut.vandyke.com -noauth
ka> create afs
Verifying, please re-enter initial_password:
Creating user afs  : [____] server or network not responding

There is no firewall running on the machine; here are the
contents of CellServDb and ThisCell:
# cat /usr/vice/etc/CellServDB
>ut.vandyke.com #Cell name    #vmfc5i.ut.vandyke.com
# cat /usr/vice/etc/ThisCell

I know I've probably just done something stupid, but
does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get this
to work?
