I was able to mount late last week the public space by using just
/afs/msu.edu which then gives the user directory and you can view others
public files as needed. I will reconfirm exactly how I did it, but my
intent was to set it up like the PC labs on campus I had used. It
mounted my public space, webpage space and the university top level.
It is possible, I will check more tomorrow.

Subject: OpenAFS install instructions
Here's a draft on installing the OpenAFS client on Windows 2000. Feel
free to edit it for your purposes.
The OpenAFS client allows you to connect to AFS resources, such as
personal & class webspace at MSU. This access method uses the original
AFS protocols, rather than MS Networking (those ports are blocked in
many cases now) or FTP.
1. Download the Windows client at the very bottom of this page:
(Version 1.2.10, filename AFSforWindows.exe, about 12.8MB)
2. Run it.
A. take the "English" default - OK
B. deselect "AFS Supplemental documentation" (unless you want it)
C. AFS cell data bases - take default - NEXT ***
D. Enter cell name - use default (openafs.org) ***
E. At the next screen (Select local drive mounting), deselect both
Z: and U: ***
F. Finish installation & REBOOT.
After rebooting and logging in, find the new icon for the AFS client in
your system tray.
Click the button to obtain tokens.
Cell should be msu.edu
Username should be your MSU NetID (is that what we call it this
PW should be your password
Click and you should receive a (Kerberos?) token good for 24 hours.
Switch to the tab for Drive Letters
Click on the entry and select the Change button
Choose an available drive letter.
For the AFS path use something like \afs\msu.edu\user\v\a\valenti
(the "v" above would be replaced by the first letter of your ID,
the "a" by the second letter, the "valenti" by your ID
Click the button to reconnect automatically, if you want.
You should be connected to your AFS home directory now.
*** - I'm ignorant of the finer details of AFS. Possibly the default
cell name should be msu.edu, or perhaps someone could customize a data
file that would automate more of this process.
**** - I think there is a path that would be the root of MSU's AFS
space, then you could maneuver around to whatever folders you have
