    4532    <para>The <application>autofs</application> package contains userspace
    4633    tools that work with the kernel to mount and un-mount removable file
    47     systems. This is useful for allowing users to mount floppies, cdroms and
     34    systems. The primary use is to mount external network file systems like
     35    nfs (see <xref linkend="nfs-utils"/>) or Samba (see <xref linkend="samba3"/>)
     36    on demand.</para>
     37   
     38    <para>It may also be useful for allowing users to mount floppies, cdroms and
    4839    other removable storage devices without requiring the system
    49     administrator to mount the devices.  This may not be ideal for all
     40    administrator to mount the devices although this capability is now generally
     41    provided by HAL (see <xref linkend="hal"/>).  This may not be ideal for all
    5042    installations, so be aware of the risks before implementing this feature.</para>
