No, don't do that - I already asked him on the night of the meeting. He
suggested taking it up with Alan Cox.

I tried him six months ago on a different topic but got no response.
The good news is that Juanjo Ciarlante, who is to masquerade what David is
to zip drives, has replied to my mail and I have sent him off a heap of
material for debugging.
What I would like to ask hpa is how to *use* autofs now that I have it
installed. Not that I would dream of bothering him with it of course.
If I want to access, say, my floppy or another.host:/debian via autofs how
do I do it? Nothing here in my docs or in my books on the subject.
