No, you created one _VOLUME_ on /vicepa.  You can create other VOLUMES
on other partitions, and then mount them.  Generally you create a
hierarchy like:

                /  |   \
           system user project
                 / | \  / | \

Note that 'root.afs' is not, generally, the appropriate place to
put your data.  I suggest you read the Wiki to learn more about
cell volume configuration and "standard" volume hierarchies.
