Thanks for the hint.  This gives me a good work-around, but the issue  
is actually a bit more complex.  I find that on an intel machine, the  
afs icon always appears in the Finder Sidebar, irrespective of any  
visibility setting in the Finder/Sidebar Preferences, and on PPC  
machines it never does.  On both architectures the Connected Servers  
option in Finder Preferences/General/"Show these items on the Desktop"  
controls whether the afs icon appears on the Desktop.

Two other solutions which work on either architecture:
- enter "open /afs" from the command line
- set "Computer" visible in Finder Sidebar Preferences & click on its  

         Yours,   Dick
