Thanks Jens... you made me say, "ok yeah..." under /etc/rc.d there exists a boot.crypto bash script...

It provides all the mechanisms for starting the cfs - I should review it so I know a bit more how it works, prob uses loopback mounts.. never fails to check your boot scripts -duh -thanks!!

if it is mounted by fstab, check /etc/fstab for a entry with cfs, remount
mount mountpoint
if it is mounted by a script in /etc/rc.d (/etc/rc.d/rc.local for
example), run it and check then why it fails on startup.

if all fails, try

grep -ir cfs /etc

Its more or less our Key Escrow. Unfortunately a German co-worker took off for a 5 week vacation, and a system crashed and restarted but never mounted the CFS.
