There is a kmod available, it's just not publicly listed (updating the  
HTML on the OpenAFS website is significantly harder than just updating  
rpms in the repository, so the website is updated less regularly than  
the repository).

Go to http://dl.openafs.org/dl/openafs/1.4.8/rhel5/ and you can  
download modules for all RHEL5/CentOS5 kernels.

However, you said in your message that you were using  
2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.centos.plus, which is a centos plus kernel module.  
I'm not sure whether the OpenAFS modules will work with these kernels  
or not. Unless you require features that are only compiled into Centos  
Plus, I'd strongly recommend just using the standard CentOS kernels.

Hope that helps,
