I'm willing to have a go at this & install on 64-bit 
Scientific Linux 4.4 server. I don't know that much
about our existing AFS server so will need some
tutorial documentataon in configuring a new AFS server
& migrating allthe config+data to a new server.

I've downloaded & installed openafs-docs-1.4.4-rhel4.2

- it is documentation from IBM dated 2000. 
Is this as modern as afs documentation is?

So far the doc looks extremely complicated & not the
thing to be done in a hurry. But with the current one
mysteriously broken, the pressure's on. A lucid but 
careful tutorial would be most welcome.
