Not everything, just the kernel module.  get the openafs-kernel-source
rpm, install it, and follow the instructions it puts in /usr/src/openafs-kernel
or some similar path.

You'll also need the kernel-source rpm from redhat for the kernel you 
are running.  "up2date -i kernel-source" should get that for you.  

A final note - you don't strictly need the kernel module to run an
AFS server.  But if you don't have it, your server machine will lack
afs client functionality (won't be able to see /afs directly).
