I looked at the aforementioned docs and didn't find anything
really useful on autofs (as far as /net is concerned).

*BUT* I took a look at amd and found that it supports the /net
construct!  Right out of the box!

So I loaded am-utils on my box and set it up to watch /net and it
works shwell!

(For those of you interested,: Yes, I am running both autofs and
 amd on the same box, doing different things.)

Thanks a lot, Alvin!
