I just thought AFS because it's more widely used and I played with

HP9000/340, so I've got 2.5 now).

// Do you have to have strictly AFS or are you looking for AFS-like

// 1. The CODA system is a successor to AFS being developed at CMU.

// There is a group which has gotten DCE running under Linux, and
