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