In thanks, I wrote a simple and to the point How-To for using autofs

I have noticed other How-To's out there about this very same subject, or
close to it. They are helpful too, but I wanted to write a How-To as
well with my own little slant to it. I know from experience that the
more there is written about an open source tool, the easier it has been
for me to get new things working. You can never have enough
documentation, tips and tricks, eh?
I got about halfway there in my updfstab-tutorial for FDP (at
if anyone cares), but there's two things I need
1. from Tim's document, the section on checking USB device ID's in the
2. Add the fact that if you run updfstab [-t] as root, there's no need
to do any logging in, etc.
The only problem that I've seen in Fedora Core (both 1 and 2) is that
the usb-storage module doesn't go away fast enough to accommodate
removal and reinsertion of the device after only a minute or two. I
haven't spent much time looking at that problem, but if someone wants to
offer a solution (off-list please!) feel free.
The author using autofs is actually taking kind of the long way around,
I think. After I update my updfstab-tutorial I will e-mail a link to
