You need:

kmod-openafs (which must match your kernel version, and variant)

You need to install them all in a single RPM transaction - that is,  
with a single invocation of 'rpm -U'

If you have yum available on your system (I'm not sure if RHEL4 ships  
with yum, I know that RHEL5, and many of the rebuilt distros do), you  
can just install the openafs-repository RPM, and 'yum install openafs- 
client' will fetch all of the necessary bits, and keep them up to  
date into the future.
