Yah, but, it adds just another level of indirection and possible confusion. I would prefer my mounts to be more clear. Hmmm, a place for an automounter to work... Well, that could involve more than just media devices - demand directories of files and home directories or users' scratch directories come to mind - so maybe a better name than media could be discovered. On our Sun systems it is in /opt/home, but I never liked it that way because we also use the name home for another directory someplace else plus opt ends up being a garbage dump for everything they haven't thought out well on Suns. ////jerry _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
