[OpenAFS] Can't mount AFS

You can just compare it with the help list....doesn't look much like the 
docs does it..
I have managed to get it working though.

root@backup afs]# vos help create
vos create: create a new volume
Usage: vos create -server <machine name> -partition <partition name> 
-name <volume name> [-maxquota
<initial quota (KB)>] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] 
[-verbose] [-encrypt] [-help]
Where: -noauth     don't authenticate
       -localauth  use server tickets
       -verbose    verbose
       -encrypt    encrypt commands

But.. # */usr/afs/bin/fs mkmount /afs/*cellname *root.cell
doesn't show the required parameters as noted in:

[root@backup afs]# fs help mkmount
fs mkmount: make mount point
Usage: fs mkmount -dir <directory> -vol <volume name> [-cell <cell 
name>] [-rw] [-fast] [-help]
Where: -rw    force r/w volume
       -fast  don't check name with VLDB

That is, is vol  "root.cell"?
I get :
[root@backup afs]# fs mkmount -dir /afs/tsukaeru.net -vol root.cell
fs: mount points must be created within the AFS file system

But /afs/tsukaeru is in my AFS filesystem...as far I can tell anyway.
Sorry for the questions, but I hope this will help the next person that
comes along and does a groups search in google too!
