You should install them all in a single RPM transaction. The argument  
here is that openafs-client isn't usable without the kernel module,  
and the kernel module isn't usable without openafs-client. So, the  
dependencies won't let you get into a situation where you have one  
installed, but not the other.

rpm -i openafs-1.4.5* openafs-client-1.4.5* kmod-openafs-1.4.5- 

If you use 'yum', just install the appropriate openafs-repository  
RPM, and "yum install openafs-client" will take care of all of these
