F7. Can I disable autofs without expecting problems?



I've got tail -f var/log/messages open at the moment, and see a bunch of stuff 
to do with automount as below.

Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: create_udp_client: hostname lookup 
failed: No such process
Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: create_tcp_client: hostname lookup 
failed: No such process
Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: lookup_mount: exports lookup failed 
for .directory
Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: create_udp_client: hostname lookup 
failed: No such process
Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: create_tcp_client: hostname lookup 
failed: No such process
Sep  9 17:06:55 localhost automount[1798]: lookup_mount: exports lookup failed 
for .directory

It appears when I open my home directory (konqueror), and work my way back 
through the filesystem to /. As soon as I reach / the messages above are 
printed out.

I don't use NFS, or Samba, and they are stopped in services, so if I disable 
autofs (which I presume will stop this printout) , am I likely to see any 
problems when I bootup? Perhaps things that autofs deals with, but I don't 
know about.

I use FTP, and SSH on my LAN btw.

Thanks for any advice.

Nigel.
