Subject [greenstone-devel] GS2 and automounted directories in Linux

I have a problem that (hopefully) someone has a solution for.

I'm trying to install the latest version of Greenstone2 from source on
Linux (Red Hat, if it matters). Problem is that, the data directory we've
been given for a project we're managing is automounted from another

I've tried installing GS2 in the automounted directory (was unable to),
and also tried setting up a soft link to a folder in the automounted
directory from within the gsdl/collect directory (was able to set up the
link, but could not import/build the collection).

If anyone has a solution for this, I would appreciate knowing about it.
If the answer is "it can't be done", I would like to know that too. :)
