Sorry to tell you this now, but you didn't have to do that. You could
have used ugidd.
Description: NFS UID mapping daemon
This package contains the UID mapping daemon (rpc.ugidd) which is used on
NFS clients to do UID/GID mapping.

Don't use autofs on a machine that may lose contact with the nfs
server. Youll kick yourself for it later. Well thats my personal
opinion anyway(Ive been using autofs for a long time now and I only
tolerate it because its the only program that will do what I want).
