Ok, I may be butting in here as I don't have all of the thread...

Is it NFS you are mounting ?

Then check out automount...

edit /etc/auto.misc

if directory /home/humbug on server_y is exported to you, then you would do either:

humbug server_y:/home:&

if the user "humbug" is a local user


whatever server_y:/home/humbug

which would add the /misc/whatever automatically whenever accessed

Automount unmounts after 5 minutes of inactivity
