Just integrated my first Windows client into my otherwise Linux only 
cell and have a similar problem here. System is WinXP SP3 (32bit) with 
OpenAFS 1.5.99d/KfW 3.22. Everything works fine except UNC path access. 
I get a message similar to the above (translated from german) when I 
enter the UNC path into Windows Explorer's address bar:

The file "\\afs\altum.de" was not found. Please check spelling and 
repeat the action or search for the file by clicking on "Start" and then
