autofs vs amd is like tinydns vs bind or exim vs sendmail
( its does it do the minimum you need or is it loaded w/ unused features
one thing that both is missing is "multi-homed servers"
if www1.foo.com is down, than it uses www2.foo.com or www3.foo.com
but at least one can do all that in other tools
its more critical for your home/user's servers on your local lan
use autofs ... simple answer
