Automount. How to set more than one mountmaps for one mountpoint?

Iīm trying to automatically mount homedirectories that are stored on w2k3 server using autofs.Homedirectories are exported using SFU and NFS server.
Directory structure looks like this:


All userīs homedirectories are on linux stations stored in /home/user1/ and this is wny I need to define more mountmaps for one mountpoint.
I tried several different configuration that should make this possible but with no success.
So my question is:
Is there a way how to set more mountmaps for one mountpoint?
Or is there a way how to make autofs to search all subdirectories in defined directory to find userīs homedir?
Thank you for help.

i'm not sure but perhaps you can try unionfs for that.
