1) You need to install the AFS daemon service using something like sc.exe
from the NT resource kit. The service name must be "TransarcAFSDaemon"
(the various utilities that start+stop it depend on that name). The
service resides in c:\afs\vice\etc\afsd_service.exe.

2) The following registry settings (many of which were populated by
afs_config, but not all) work for me on Win2K. You can apply them with
regedit.exe (not regedt32.exe). There are some issues on Win2K that
require setting an alternate LANA ID.. You may wish to omit the LANA ID
before trying these settings.
