AFAIK, there is no such thing as a Windows AFS server. Or has this changed=

Once you have setup your AFS cell, you can create new user directories=20
under /afs (i.e. /afs/your.cell.com/users/johndoe), with one AFS volume for=
each user, move the contents of the former home dirs and change the entries=
in /etc/passwd. To access those directories at login time you either need A=
enabled login program or the appropriate PAM modules for getting Kerberos=20
tickets and AFS tokens.

I don't know, I don't use Windows. However, you can install the AFS client =
Windows to access the AFS file space.

AFAIK, Windows has Kerberos capabilities built in. You should set up a=20
dedicated kerberos server (MIT, Heimdal or Windows AD). OTOH, using AFS'=20
kaserver is not recommended (because of its Kerberos 4 roots).
