Do you have any special reason that your storage is spread out on
several OS:es? Looks like a quite small installation to be so
spread out.

No, not as NFS. AFS mounts as AFS with it's own kernel module (in
Windows called "driver" I think).

What are you especially found of in these so that you want to keep them?
