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