If you actually looked at the RPMS available, you would have noticed that
the files in i686 are all kernel modules.  All the core packages are
in i386.   You also might have noticed a package called "openafs-server".
Starting from there you could have discovered that it depends on "openafs".
And there you go, that's what you need for an AFS Server.

Note however that you do need an AFS Client in order to configure a new AFS
Cell.  But if you just want to add a server to an existing cell you can do
it without a client.
