'root.afs' is the name of the volume that corresponds to /afs.
If a volume with that name did not already exist when you started the 
client, then it is likely to be confused and not let you access anything.
Having created root.afs, you will need to restart the client.

Also, you probably don't want to also mount root.afs at /afs/cell.name.
Traditionally, the volume mounted there is called 'root.cell'.
