I agree that Network Identity Manager is useful here.

>>What is it exactly that doesn't work?
I want to create a installation script which will
execute sequentially and prompt user for required inputs and
setup OpenAFS client with Keberos 5 support.

This script will allow me to automate setup activity,
and create a uniform setup across multiple client
machines in future.

How about also installing Network Identity Manager 2.0 (hereafter
Available from https://www.secure-endpoints.com/ (which may well be the
place you got Heimdal from).

What is it exactly that doesn't work? You should be able to browse
portions of several cells (e.g., openafs.org) unauthenticated through
\\AFS\all\<cellname>; this requires neither Heimdal nor NetIdMgr.
And once you've got all of Heimdal, NetIdMgr and OpenAFS you should be
able to use NetIdMgr to obtain a TGT for your realm and an AFS service
ticket/token for your cell; the latter might give you access to more of
the data stored in your cell, depending on what the ACLs look like.

(I assume that your AFS cell is already set up.)
