Accessing Non-NFS File Systems

Autofs can also mount files other than NFS files, for example, files on removable media, such as CD-ROM or USB flash drives.

Instead of mounting a file system from a server, you put the media in the drive and reference the file system from the map. For example, to access a CD-ROM application, become an administrator and add an entry for the CD-ROM file system similar to the following example in the autofs map, with the CD-ROM device name following the colon:

hsfs     -fstype=hsfs,ro     :/dev/sr0
