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.
