Install AutoFS... and edit accordingly.. Slackware default usually comes with autofs.

If the files are not there, you'll probably have to create them.. and why are you trying to start a service which clearly is missing files that it needs? If you did a autofs start from anywhere, the real executable probably isn't in your path, most likely in /etc/rc.d/ where most startup scripts and service scripts reside in slackware.

I read up and created the files, yet it doesn't seem to be working. I added /etc/rc.d/rc.autofs start to rc.local...and it says "starting autofs.." and it appears to start...but it simply doesn't automount. Could anyone help me?
