I have installed OpenAFS on Linux using the following:

openafs-1.4.0-fc3.1.i386.rpm        I assume this is a 'base' rpm
openafs-client-1.4.0-fc3.1.i386.rpm    I assume this is client functionality
openafs-docs-1.4.0-fc3.1.i386.rpm        Documentation, not sure I even 
needed it
openafs-kernel-1.4.0-2.6.9_1.667_1.i586.rpm        I assume its the 
kernel "connectivity"

Am I correct in my assumptions?

Didn't use these, what are they for?


Is there a rationale for supplying only Fedora/Red Hat on Linux?

If I want to run OpenAFS on SuSE do I have to compile from source or can 
I use the Red Hat kernel version (assuming there is one) of OpenAFS 
corresponding to the SuSE kernel?
