I've installed the 1.4.0-rc5 from your rpms last night and all seems  
to be working great.  After building the rpms for 1.4.0-rc8 I  
realized that I didn't know how to build the rpm for the kernel  
module so I reverted to your rpms.

I've installed 3 afs-db's and 3 fileservers each with clients all on  
RHEL 3.0 (whitebox really)

Derek, I realize you said yesterday that I'm on my own building the  
rpms, but would you be able to explain how to build the rpms for my  
running kernel?  I think it would be great to know that, and  
available via the mailing list archive too.
