For those who may be interested, I found an interesting resolution to 
this based on your comments. During the kickstart installation, 
authconfig had set up /etc/krb.conf with the following lines based on 
the values I gave it:

KNOX.EDU      pugsly.knox.edu:88
KNOX.EDU      leibniz.lab.knet.edu
KNOX.EDU      pugsly.knox.edu:749 admin server

When I deleted these lines, things seemed to work fine.  I'm not sure 
why this is the case, but at least it's fixed.

Thanks for your help.
