###Adding a automount share###
#vi /etc/auto.master

Goto the following lines
/misc /etc/auto.misc
/net -hosts

Add this lines after the above lines
/- /etc/auto.direct

Suppose u want to automount /media/rhel5 @ 192.168.1.2 to /remote in your local

machine

#mkdir /remote

#vi /etc/auto.direct
/remote 192.168.1.2:/media/rhel5
:wq

#cd /remote
NFS share will be mounted automatically when u execute cd command to /remote. It will

be automatically unmount if you are not using the share for a particular amount of time.

You can set this time as shown below.

in /etc/auto.master file
/- /etc/auto.direct --timeout=60 Time is in seconds.
