thanks for the quick reply Jeffrey,

I guess I'm confused about authentication.  i.e. my understanding is  
that I won't be able to write unless I've been authorized by kaserver.

also the java doc for the afs java api made reference to using the  
FileOutputStream for writing an output stream to an afs file, but  
know that you say that maybe it was referring to an afs file i.e.  

so that said, I guess I just have to figure out the proper ACL for  
allowing write access to the filesystem.

does that sound about right?

Thanks again,
