Not me, but I have a user who is running 5.10 on his laptop. Installing
the OpenAFS client was as easy as enabling the "universe" repository in
/etc/apt/sources.list, installing module-assistant and openafs-client
(and heimdal-clients for good measure), then running "m-a prepare" and
"m-a build openafs". Install the resulting .deb with "dpkg -i".

You should be able to do something similar in 5.04. Take the
openafs-modules-source package from Russ Allbery's repository
(the URL is in the archives for this list), so you'll get a recent
1.4.0 release candidate. It's nice if you upgrade the userspace
packages too; you may need to recompile them with the right library
version dependencies. Does pbuilder work in Ubuntu as it does in Debian?

Yes. 1.2.13 won't play well with Linux 2.6, for many reasons.
