Setting up Automounter

This is the mount point, the location where the autofs filesystem associated with map will be mounted on the local filesystem, in this case ./misc

This is the map file associated with the autofs filesystem.
The map file contains entries for the devices to be mounted on the mount point

These are options associated with all the devices listed in the map file.
In this case, all devices listed in /etc/auto.misc automatically will be unmounted after 60 seconds of disuse
