Well, that's fine, but not why root.afs can't be mounted on /afs

you're confused.

And the docs are no excuse. There are perfectly valid documents explaining 
how to set up a cell which have existed forever, were right when I set up 
a cell in 1994, and still are. No, I won't provide a pointer, unless you 
agree to send me a case of Jones Diet Black Cherry when I tell you what search 
string I passed to google and had the answer staring me in the face ;-)
