3    help
4      The automounter is a tool to automatically mount remote file systems
5      on demand. This implementation is partially kernel-based to reduce
6      overhead in the already-mounted case; this is unlike the BSD
7      automounter (amd), which is a pure user space daemon.
9      To use the automounter you need the user-space tools from the autofs
10      package; you can find the location in <file:Documentation/Changes>.
11      You also want to answer Y to "NFS file system support", below.
13      If you want to use the newer version of the automounter with more
14      features, say N here and say Y to "Kernel automounter v4 support",
15      below.
17      To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be
18      called autofs.
20      If you are not a part of a fairly large, distributed network, you
21      probably do not need an automounter, and can say N here.
