thanks. I was worried about other issues like 'integrated logon', ie.
will the user need to klog from a term, or is there some kind of pam
integration for afs -- or do I need to intall MIT kerb for mac ...

Also, last time we use openafs on a mac, finder would hang on occasion
when accessing afs volumes so I assumed I had done something wrong on
the install.

last, since everyone has their own idea about where to put things, I
was curious if there was something like transarc-paths or mac-paths or
whatever .. I will just assume that need to look in
/var/db/openafs/etc/ for configuration items -- also that openafs
client with auto-start (when I install openafs on suse it does not
auto-generate the start links in /etc/init.d/rcN.d ( or since mac is
bsd would it be /usr/local/etc/rc?? )
