Well, it appears I have one of the Macs which is blacklisted from =
booting into 64-bit mode --though I can run Lion. If you want to know =
more about what I'm referring to you can see the workaround that people =
did for Snow Leopard and the same issue here http://netkas.org/?p=3D189 =
Though I have not seem similar fixes for Lion, nor do I want to support =
users doing that sort of fix.

Regarding getting OpenAFS working on this type of system, do you have a =
recommendation for next steps? Should I build openafs from source on =
this machine? We will no doubt have users running into this problem as =
the semester begins.
