As root, try "ps-A", this should list *all* processes on the system (mind out, if you're running an X server, you'll have a lot of them). Find autofs, and note the number to the left of it. then run "kill ####", where #### is the number you just looked up. This should do your exorcism for you. If you want to doublecheck, run "ps -A" again, autofs should be gone.
If you don't see it the first time round, autofs isn't running in the first place. You may have another daemon running (I don't know SuSe), but I'm about to step out of my depth here, so I'll stop.
