If node1 was recently set up, remove /vice/vol/BigVolumeList before
running createvol_rep. We check that file to see if the partition is
available on the server, but forget to regenerate it when a new Coda
server is added. A fix for this is already in the CVS tree.

No, r/o replication is deprecated and you can make a r/w replicated
volume `virtually read-only' by simply setting all ACL's to `rl'.

Yes, volumes are logical collections of files, multiple volumes can
share the same physical partition on the server.
