Dear Christian,

neither a native nor an somehow mounted /home can be directly exported =20
using AFS. The AFS file server stores volumes and corresponding =20
folders and files on its /vicepX partitions in an internal format =20
which does not allow re-exporting local or foreign file systems =20
through afs. Re-exporting AFS volumes from an AFS client machine to =20
other machines via NFS/CIFS works, if you get the kerberos/token setup =20
right. But I'm afraid this is not what you want to do...
