Wrong(tm).

autofs AND mounting at the commandline just say:
mount.nfs: /mnt is already mounted or busy

Which has an actual information value of about 1%.

In my case i moved a nfs exported directory inside another nfs-exported
directory month ago and placed a symlink where the direcotry was (on the
server-side). It never acured to me that that was "wrong"(tm).

Now i can only mount one of the two mounts and the other just tells
"busy".

After reading this i could fix my case easyly. I just erased the
"deeper" mount and symlinked the directory from the other mount.

But YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT YOU DID SOMETHING WRONG. Just getting a "Busy"
lets you staying with Question-marks flying around you head!
