I would think that in a large installation, you would want to keep a large
collection of RPMS on your kickstart server which may or may not be
associated with your AFS space.

I'd rather not upgrade filesystem named X while using filesystem
named X.  That just scares the hell out of me :)

Our AFS client upgrade process is typically:

chkconfig afs off
ssh in
wget http://ourkickstartserver/somedirectory/fancy-new-afs-client-x-y-z.rpm
rpm -Uvh fancy-new-afs-client-x-y-z.rpm
(or rpm -e old-crappy-afs-client-o-p-q; rpm -ivh fancy-new-afs-client-x-y-z.rpm)
chkconfig afs on
sh /etc/rc.d/init.d/afs start
