Created attachment 346591 [details]
Proposed documentation change.

Description of problem:

    Using autofs in a diskless root environment requires the creation
    of a symbolic link from /proc/mounts to /etc/mtab.  This is not
    included in the current documentation installed to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

    every time

Steps to Reproduce:

    1. Follow the steps shown in the documentation.
    2. Try to get make autofs work
Actual results:

    autofs dosn't work until you take the extra step of linking
    /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts

Expected results:

    autofs should work after following the steps in the documentation

Additional info:

    This is a request to update the documentation, not the code.

    Attached patch adds the additional information to the documentation.
