Yes you should be creating Volumes or something.
It doesn't matter if you do it under aix or RH, or even both,
just so long as your client can talk to vl & vl properly
knows where all the fileservers & volumes are.

By convention, you should have at least these volumes:
	root.cell	- root of *your* per-cell hierarchy.
	root.afs	- volume that might be mounted as /afs .
				(if not using dynroot).
			should contain a mountpoint to at least root.cell.
You will probably actually want more volumes than just these.
