How do I replace a static NFS-mount with a automatic one done by amd

Right now, I could do "mount srchost:/usr/src /usr/src", but as my srchost is
frequently down, I'd like to replace this with a automatic mount done by amd.

My problem is, I don't thet it done very well. Here's what I can think of:

- "amd /usr/src src-map", but then I don't see any directory when I do a
  "cd /usr/src". I'll have to go blindly to "sys" etc., which is not what I
- start amd with "amd /usr src-map", I'll probably get /usr/src mounted when I
  cd into it, but the minor disadvantage is I my /usr-disk is shadowed by the
  amd's /usr then. ;-)

So, any smart suggestions on how to do a "mount host:/some/path /some/path"
when I cd /some/path?

(Disclaimer: Yes, I have RTFM, over and over again!)

Help please,
