You can have up to 255 vice partitions (I believe that is the correct
number). They are of the form /vicepX or /vicepXY, for example /vicepa
or /vicepaa (I tend to have a couple partitions per file server, and
typically call them /vicepa, /vicepb and /vicepc)

It's been a while since I've compiled OpenAFS on a linux machine, I believe
what this is really telling you is that you need to get the kernel headers
for whatever kernel you are running and make sure they show up under
/usr/src/linux. Typically a distro has a kernel development package
that you can install that gets you what you want. Someone who has done
this recently can give more info.
