irritating automount issue

I have read every automount thread I could find here and other linux forums, and none of the solutions are working. I am running kernel, I have automounter ver4 loaded as a module, but have tried ver3 as well, both as module and built in. Here is my auto.misc and my auto.master


cdrom -fstype=iso9660,ro :/dev/hdc
floppy -fstype=vfat,sync,umask=002,gid=floppy :/dev/fd0


/mnt /etc/auto.misc

This is exactly how a friend of mine has his setup, and it works without any problems. At the moment, my mnt directory has directories in it, but i have also tried it with them removed and the directory empty. My lsmod shows autofs4 loaded as a module, and every time I make a change, i restart the automounter daemon, using an rc file that is identical to the one my friend uses. It confirms automounter daemons started, but running mount does not reflect this, nor are any automounter processes running. The supermount and automount programs are definately installed, and at this point, I'm completely stumped as to why this just won't work.
