Configuration of the Automounter Autofs

A Sun Solaris friend of mine looked at me in disgust when he saw my /etc/fstab file to mount NFS mounts, CDs and more. I was seriously hurt so when he explained the shiny happy possibilities of autofs on Solaris (and Linux), I was immediately convinced: Configuration of the Automounter Autofs... and all was well!

we use a bunch of autofs stuff here, because before I came in for all the Linux stuff, we were mainly as Solaris shop. autofs makes for a nice /etc/fstab, but just moves all the mess into /etc/auto.master and others. I'm still not sure I'm exactly sold on it.
