Did you type in \\afs\openafs.org? When using the default freelance mode
in windows, cells won't appear in \\afs unless you have looked at them
at least once.
open a command prompt and try the following:
1. run "net use X: \\afs\openafs.org"
(where X is an unused drive letter)
2. open X: in windows explorer. What does it show?
3. run "net use X: /d" where X: is the same as step #1.
4. does openafs.org appear in \\afs in windows explorer?
