After compiling the afs code (1.0.1) and going through the quick start
I get all the way up to the point of adding the root.afs volume where I
get the
following error

Failed to create the volume root.afs XXXXXXXXXX
: Input/output error
Error in vos create command.
: Input/output error

where XXXXXXXXXX is some long number never the same twice...
after executing

./vos create <machine_name> <partition_name> root.afs -cell <cell_name>

can someone point me in the right direction as to what this means?
