Well, the preferred method is to build an openafs-kernel-* rpm for
your particular kernel. Failing that, you should just copy the
openafs.ko to /lib/modules/`uname -r`

Hmm, I thought it would be openafs.o.. But maybe that's only in the
build tree? I haven't really played with the openafs-kernel-source

generally you just use 'rpmbuild' to build a kernel module rpm..
run "rpmbuild -ip openafs.src.rpm" for more info.
