This is from awhile ago, but if you're still looking at this...

That is the most recent HP-UX-specific documentation that I know of, but
yes, it's probably old. Are you trying to install the AFS client on
HP-UX, or just a fileserver? If you are just trying to install a
fileserver, you do not need to perform those steps. If you use the
'namei' fileserver backend (run ./configure with
--enable-namei-fileserver), you don't need to deal with the kernel
module at all, and you may have an easier time installing if you don't
deal with the kernel module.
