Hi Dave,

gparted lets you non-destructively repartition the disk. If you plan to 
repartition the root disk, then you should boot from a liveCD or 
something similar.

Starting with version 1.4.8, you can have vicepX partitions larger than 2TB.

Hop onto the openafs irc channel on freenode or the jabber chatroom 
openafs@conference.openafs.org for some live help.
