Man, I don't really know. This mounts file systems on demand somehow?
Two of the machines seemed to crash exclusivley in connection with scsi emulation
for ide. I mistakenly thought that scsi emulatuion was not supported under 2.0.x .
The autofs problem (don't know what it was) has been fixed for 2.2.2, but the ide-scsi
problem, which has several posts on the kernel devel list, has not yet been addressed.
The ide guy knows about it now , however.
Anyway, on the third machine, I was transfering ~1GB from one mounted ide
partition to another (e2fs). It would hang virtual consolse and X and the network,
so probably the kernel.
