Hi Jeffrey,

I uninstalled 'everything" and deleted the HKLM\Software\OpenAFS key in the
registry and have some improvement. The mountpoints created with the gui now
work (I installed version 1.3.6600 of the client).

the afs-2 cell gives me one problem. When I create the drive mapping, I can't
use it. However, when I :

net use k: /delete         and then
net use k: \\afs\\home\cowboy

"it" just works.

thanks for all your suggestions and for checking out that cell.
