1 config AUTOFS4_FS 2 tristate "Kernel automounter version 4 support (also supports v3)" 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. 8 9 To use the automounter you need the user-space tools from 10 <ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/v4/>; you also 11 want to answer Y to "NFS file system support", below. 12 13 To compile this support as a module, choose M here: the module will be 14 called autofs4. You will need to add "alias autofs autofs4" to your 15 modules configuration file. 16 17 If you are not a part of a fairly large, distributed network or 18 don't have a laptop which needs to dynamically reconfigure to the 19 local network, you probably do not need an automounter, and can say 20 N here.
