yup... i tend to use /.autofs as the mountdir...
and usr explicit symlinks from /.autofs  to /net/{host}

and the local link is  ln -s ../ /net/host

works good for all my scripts to keep all boxes in sync with each other

think we just need to train the windoze users from touching the
servers .... ( no reboots, no resets, no root access, no ssh logins, etc )
seems to make for a better nfs environment..

reset/kill the main servers  ( like home:/home and mail:/var/spool/mail )
