Yes I also use autofs with openldap.
My setup is as this: the PDC is running on a gentoo box and provide system authentification with openldap to windows
client and also gentoo client, I also use samba for filesharing between client and server.
Because I don't want my users being able to see at other users home directory I use autofs which mount only user
logged in home directory on the client.
I am not a specialist in Openldap so I don't know if I will be able to help you, but if it can help, I can give you
this link : http://www.drakonix.fr/index.php?id=gentoo&tab=21&pid=26#t03
It point to my setup documentation and perhaps you will found usefull information.
You will also find some links to other wiki's and doc which talk about this subject.
Oh I forgot it is written in French but all the command used and file configuration are written
And excuse me for my poor English
Hope it's help
