autofs is a kernel-based automounter for Linux.  It is still under
development, although it seems to be stabilizing relatively quickly.

To build autofs, please inspect Makefile.rules and include/automount.h
to see if there are any options you need to change, then you can:

	make			... make the daemon and modules
	make install		... install the daemon and modules

The kernel code is no longer distributed with the autofs daemon; it is
now only distributed with the kernel code.  A diff is included for
kernel version 2.0.30; autofs will be included directly into 2.0.31
when that version is released.

autofs was written by H. Peter Anvin of Transmeta Corporation, see the
COPYRIGHT file.

If you use or want to help develop autofs, please join the autofs
mailing list:

	autofs@linux.kernel.org

by sending a message containing the line "subscribe autofs" to
majordomo@linux.kernel.org.
