    Not in 2.1.84+. autofs doesn't work at all... At least, all versions
    after the "unlikely occurrence" fix are broken for me. This isn't a
    networked box, so all of this is from floppies and CDs (two of each). The
    floppy death could perhaps be attributed to the broken floppy driver
    (mtools are OK, and I can read ext2 flops my box, but writing seems to
    break things badly.)
