Native to Red Hat is the autofs RPM. The description reads:
Red Hat, Inc. <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla
A tool for automatically mounting and unmounting filesystems.
Autofs controls the operation of the automount daemons. The automount
daemons automatically mount filesystems when you use them and
unmount them after a period of inactivity. Filesystems can include
network filesystems, CD-ROMs, floppies, and others.
Install this package if you want a program for automatically mounting
and unmounting filesystems. If your Red Hat Linux machine is on a
network, you should install autofs.
