I've now got 5 large binders filled with everthing from the IBM/TransArc 
docs to howto's and admin
guides from numerous university web sites, RedHat, and lists.  I still 
fell back to the Quick
Beginnings Guide to get a working test setup of two servers and several 
workstations.  I also found that
utilizing the QBG filesystem layout caused me less grief than trying to 
adhere to the layout installed
by the RPM's I tried (IMHO -  it meshed better with most of the docs I 
use).  AFS is not the only issue
as you should get comfortable with Kerberos administration (that covers 
several more binders :) ).
Start with a users guide say 
or http://www.frc.ri.cmu.edu/~jmisher/software/afs/afs-linux.shtml or
http://www.stanford.edu/services/afs/intro to get an idea of the 
concepts behind AFS.  Then surf

Good Luck
