I know a few people at NCSU and Duke that have gotten OpenAFS to compile
and work under linux (they even made an .srpm).  We use AFS on campus
for just about everything at NCSU, but I don't think its a valid option
for a beowulf cluster.  There are a lot of features in AFS that make it
great for a distributed network, but will probablly just add unneeded
overhead in a beowulf cluster.

Here are the OpenAFS mailing lists:


PS the people I know who compiled OpenAFS did it on RH 7.0
