I read about bigger projects in Germany running AFS successfully. I 've
got a really enthusiastic mail from an administrator maintaining one of
these sites.

But I read some rumours that AFS isn't running well on FreeBSD (gossip on
the German FreeBSD mailing list). Is it true?

BTW: I wrote two weeks ago that I like to start writing an iSCSI
initiator. I spent the last days reading documents and sources and
installing my programming and test environment.

So I didn't start writing yet but I'm on the way..
