    What is mounted on /net?
    Check what processes are using it with "fuser -mv /net". You can kill them automatically with "fuser -mk /net". Note that both have to be run as root.

    Oh, automount... Who ever uses that? Would you mind removing autofs from your startup? Does someone know if mayhap Mandrake actually makes use of the automounter? I think there was some distro that did, but I'm fairly sure that it was Debian.
