How to krb authenticate w/o a local Mac OS X account?

My goal is to make a lab of Macs have AFS access just like, say, a lab
of our other Unix offerings. For instance, when I login to an SGI, I
do AFS authentication and am placed in my AFS home directory.
I've setup your Kerberos authentication such that I can login using my
AFS user/pw combo, but a local account is needed, requiring,
apparently, the identical user/pw combo. So my immediate goal is to,
say, talk to our NIS server which has the master password file - is
this possible? Any pointer, however brief, is welcomed.
Eventually I'd like to associate a krb ticket with an AFS token, but
really haven't a clue how to go about that, or even if that makes sense
(; (e.g., having installed OpenAFS, I'd like to spare the user from
manually doing a klog).
Apologies if my questions are imprecise, this is not an area I have
much experience in ....
