Anyway, ext3 would not solve my problem. I have to check the 
vice-partition by hand (via "fsck.ext2 -f"), because resize2fs forces me 
to do so (otherwise it refuses to resize the partition, because the 
possibility of data-loss).

So, that's my plan:

- stop the openafs-fileserver
- unmount the vice-partition
- check it via linux-fsck
- enlarge the partition
- resize it with resize2fs
- mount it again
- restart the openafs-fileserver

That's exactly the same, like what I do with a normal partition (expect 
stop/start openafs-fileserver).
Is that the correct way? Or are there any special openafs-things that I 
should do additionally?!
