    What's the easiest way to add a remote machine NFS automount to Tiger?
    I tried just putting it into /etc/fstab but that didn't seem to take.
    I know there's a directory service NetInfo as well, but after adding
    what I thought were the right entries via niutil -create

    [macbox:~] root# niutil -list . /mounts
    98 192.168.0.15:/export/home/somedir

    If I mount this directory by hand, it's fine, so I know it's getting
    exported correctly. It's a laptop that comes one sporadically -- would
    the Mac check for it at boot time, and if it wasn't there, the automount
    wouldn't work? Or does it only look for when someone accesses the
    directory?

    Sorry, I'm usually on Unix or Linux boxes and just can't grok the Mac
    half the time.

    TIA
