Nice read, I notice that some of your info seems to be in the default 
amd setup now. I also notice that the man pages are a bit dated (Apr 21, 
2006), Are there any plans to update that :-) ? I got amd running, it 
seems to work OK, except that it drops a mount after 5 min. active or 
not. I can't see anything to twiddle in the amd.conf file, any clues ? 
TIA ....
