You mean amd's "autofs"?
Am-utils version 6.1 has autofs support for Linux and Solaris 2.5+ as
_the_ major new feature, in addition to several other minor new
features. The autofs support is completely transparent to the end-user,
aside from the fact that /bin/pwd now always returns the correct
amd-ified path. The administrator can easily switch between NFS and
autofs mounts by changing one parameter in amd.conf.
