    So I already have a WP 2.7.1 blog setup and now I want to add some subdomains and add more blogs using the same DB.

    SO do I create subdomain, upload WP 2.7.1 and provide the same DB info on the config file. Except change the prefix to something unique.

    Will this work? Or am I missing something. and what happens when I have to update?

    Thanks

    Assumingly you've already crated the database, upload wordpress, go to the index page, you need to install it, enter all of the data correctly, then change the table to something differnt from the rest of your blogs and click install, simple as that.

    will all the logins be the same? Not the DB logins, but the WP ones

    No they won't be, you'll be given a username of "Admin" by default and a stupid password like "3jh0fwhe98fh", but just log into the account, change the password to say "penis" on all of your blogs, then the login info for all of your blogs will be admin:penis (username : password) - I'm going to be looking into managing all of your wordpress blogs hosted on the same database from a single control-panel with easy-switching because I have a number of blogs on the same database as well, but honestly, it's simple, just change the table and your sorted! :)
