hello world

We are preparing to use afs at the university innsbruck(austria) for some thousends users and hundred Linux clients.
The test phase starts with the issue of RedHat 7.3 Linux i686 and OpenAFS 1.2.4, one server equipped with RAID 5+1 (netto 280 GB).
But before entering the test state I have some questions:
1. Has /vicepx to be a real partition or suffices to be a directory on the root partition (or anywhere)?
2. Creating one additional large volume with rw access for everyone, can i restrict the user quota in this volume?
3. The crucial point:I have to use ADSM(TSM) for backup. How can this be done? XBSA? (we have no AIX client)

(BTW: for linux only it would be very nicer if "afs" manages only the volumes, and passes all queries (kernel acl, quotas on server, ..) to the right server. the content of volumes stored like a local tree.)

thanxs for your comments.
