I don't think I'm using the automount daemon at all. I simply have /home
set up in /etc/exports and the clients have thales:/home set up to be
NFS-mounted when the system boots. Am I missing something?

I don't think I've changed anything since I installed RH 5.2. The previous
setup was RH 5.1. Ben Kochie helped me get that going last summer. I don't
recall if we used an automount daemon or not. Ben, do you remember?
