Running freeBSD 4.9. I have a 4-in-1 pcmcia flash memory reader from CompUSA, and managed to get it to work with my laptop. I have been playing around with it and found this page:

Automounting is new to me, so I tried following the steps; I got all the way through step 2, 'configuring mount', so I can now just type:

mount /camera

and it will mount the card. (Called it camera for my own personal reference.) So this is in my /etc/fstab:

/dev/ad8s1 /camera msdos rw,noauto 0 0

Now, trying to get through step 3, configuring automount. I followed the instructions to add these to my rc.conf:

amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /host /etc/"

Created the /.amd_mnt directory, and added this to my

localhost/camera type:=program;fs:=/camera;\ mount:="/sbin/mount mount /camera";\ unmount:="/sbin/umount umount /camera"

But according to the page, it seems it should work after this; it does, however, not. I have a symlink that I can't remove that is:
/host/localhost/camera --> /camera

But accessing either directory does not result in the card being automounted.

I don't have an amd.conf. Should I, and if so, what should be in it?
