First problem is that if you're using the kmod kernel modules, you  
need to use an openafs-client RPM that's been built to support them.  
Do you already have the FC6 1.4.5 openafs-client RPM installed? If  
not, you need to install it in the same transaction as you install  
the kmod.

Second problem is why it's thinking that the kernel-i686 dependency  
is unsatisfied. I assume that the kernel you have installed is the one, and that you've installed the i686 variant. Ca n  
you run:

rpm -q --whatprovides kernel-i686


rpm -q --provides kernel

and let me know the output.
