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.  The kernel source code for the 2.0 and
2.1 kernels are now dissociated; the 2.1 VFS has diverged so
drastically that keeping the code synchronized is no longer a possibility.

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.
