I played with it for a short while, never got it working. From my hazy
memory, I think I got the server and the client both running, but
couldn't get them to talk to each other. Probably just didn't get them
configured quite right, but the doco wasn't all that great either.

InterMezzo doesn't seem very active, but the SourceForge page claims

OpenAFS looks very active (although the web site sucks hard). Lots of
