30<para>The <application>autofs</application> package contains userspace
31tools that work with the kernel to mount and un-mount removable file
32systems. This is useful for allowing users to mount floppies, cdroms and
33other removable storage devices without requiring the system
34administrator to mount the devices. This may not be ideal for all
35installations, so be aware of the risks before implementing this feature.</para>

148a default of 60 seconds of inactivity before unmounting the device. A
