Using pam_mount to mount /home on login


I have an Ubuntu desktop and a Debian server. I would like my /home/username directory to be hosted on my server, and automatically be mounted on my desktop when I login.

I believe this can be done with pam_mount. Can someone give me some pointers, or a good howto?

THank you kindly

I have read that autofs is often used for that. There are a few threads in the Slackware forum on how to set it up.
