well whatever you do don't enable root login!  afp passwords are
plaintext.  

edit /etc/netatalk/AppleVolumes.default

i have for example:

# don't export $HOME as macos dribbles hfs crap all over the place
# instead put it in a playpen where the mess can be contained.
~/afp/                  "afp"   options=,nocrlf,noadouble

note that the noadouble doesn't seem to work, or my understanding of
what it does is flawed.  i hate all that HFS garbage littering my home
directory.  any export without ~ should be available to everyone,
permissions are controlled just the same as thier unix uid.  beware
that files owned by root will be owned by `<any user>' on macos since
uid=0 is <any user> on macos.  im pretty sure that afpd is smart
enough to not let normal users run around chmoding and chowning and
scribbling files owned by root, but i would double check...
