This is all new stuff to me...and very new "speak" as well...

I don't think I meant volumes the way AFS means volumes, as you noticed.

But, I would like to have a /afs/home that is 1TB made up of various 
computers/drives. If I add a new HD to a new computer, can I now expand 
/afs/home to include the size of the new HD, or must I make a new AFS?

Going back to reread the AFS FAQ once more...
