    Generally with modern Kerberos installations, you want to choose FTP with GSSAPI from the Connection type pop-up. GSSAPI is the interface Fetch uses to work with Kerberos v5.

    KClient is a Mac interface to Kerberos v4, and Kerberos v4 is in the process of being phased out. Apple no longer includes support for KClient/Kerberos v4 in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, so Fetch cannot offer it as an option, which is probably why it is grayed out for you.

    And, needless to say, the server you plan to connect to needs to be configured to support Kerberos connections before Fetch can connect successfully to it.
