I use amd for doing just this. it works for most cases. My map file looks like cdrom type:=cdfs;dev:=/dev/acd0c;addopts:=ro floppy type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/fd0 zip type:=ufs;dev:=/dev/da0s1a pczip type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0s4 pczipF type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0 flash type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0s1 (minus the NFS filesystems) This works for everything but the type:=ufs. When amd mounts a unix filesystem it will never unmount it. I had to patch amd to unmount ufs. My amd.conf is the default. The parameters for amd are: /usr/sbin/amd -p -a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /u /etc/amd.u Best, -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
