So what version of the OpenAFS client are they running?  Most new versions 
can already authenticate against K5 KDCs provided you also install the MIT 
Kerberos for Windows package.  Depending on the file server AFS version, 
you may or may not need the 524 daemon installed.

So if you can't change anything, is there a point in asking?
