[OpenAFS] host principal and keytab

I need to allow hosts to read/write files into AFS directories.  I 
currently have a host principal as host/server.rpi.edu, and I extracted 
a keytab file for it as /etc/krb5.keytab.

This is not working, so I must be missing something.  How do I get AFS 
tokens using krb5.keytab? There is some AFS form to the principal in 
kerberos 5 that I haven't mapped correctly.

Could you please show an example of what I need to make this work?

Thanks and Happy 2008.
