You should/might find that http://noc.hep.wisc.edu/NetWorkerAFS.txt 
works nicely.  But... Legato as stopped shipping the executable 
("nsrfile") that encapsulates vos dump streams into NetWorker dump 
streams... so NetWorkerAFS v0 is essentially at the end of it's life.

This winter I'll either 1) rewrite NetWorkerAFS (so it tells NetWorker
write vos dumps to disk and then back up the vos dump files) or 2)
migrate to TiBS.
