Yup, after much muddling, and a few repeats of 'cannot interpret partition
name blah', I made a new ext2 partition and mounted it at /vicepa. I'm
hoping the ext2 bit it temporary as I'm going to have a bit too much data on
some of my afs volumes to run a non-journaling filesystem - does reiserfs
work with afs yet?
The partition is an LVM logical volume - are there any afs LVM issues I
should be wary of?

Maybe I'll try that kernel later if things continue to not work :)
Thanks for the help!
