Yeah, that's what I'm scratching my head about.
So I guess you have something like
But then what goes into /etc/auto.server_name? The how-tos I've found
seem to focus mostly on automounting floppies and CDs but aren't real
clear about how to do nfs mounts.
What I'm doing now with my manual nfs mount is to export /public on
the server and mount it as /public on the client as well. I guess I'm
going to have to change this to use autofs.
