Not quite. During installation you can:

mkdir /vicepa; touch /vicepa/AlwaysAttach

However, I recommend against using the root partition for the reason
Esther Filderman already mentioned.

Also because eventually some clueless user (or clueless daemon or
clueless...) will try to shove several terabytes onto your server, and
will fill up the partition. Better that user/daemon/whatever should
fill up an AFS only partition than your root partition. Filling up the
partition that AFS uses for storing its metadata on is not nice for
AFS, never mind a lot of other software.

Please take the time to use gparted to shrink your root partition and
create one or more partitions for /vicep*.
