The Config Files

The config:

 # Where to mount the filesystems

 # What to log ?

 # At startup, do we "restart" existing mounts if we determine they could
 # have been automounted ?

 # Do we want to be able to use selectors on the /defaults map entry ?
 selectors_in_defaults = yes
 # Do we attempt to unmount all automounted file systems on exit ?

Setting it Up

 mkdir /amd /net /phatdisk/home -p
 ln -s /net/orgo/phatdisk/httpd /phatdisk/httpd       # Not actually correct, but this
 ln -s /net/orgo/phatdisk/projects /phatdisk/projects # is the best we could come up with
 # If you need mail
 ln -s /net/orgo/phatdisk/mail /var/mail
 ln -s /net/orgo/phatdisk/mail /var/spool/mail

Automount/am-utils mounts directories as they're needed, so /net/ is going to stay empty until something tries to directly access /net/orgo/*
