RHEL 4 : how to remove /home automount ?

P: 20
Hi, I have installed RHEL4 in a box and right now i wanted to have symlink for /home.

The /home by default is automounted(come with installation). I wanted to remove the automount and create the symlink from /home -> /mydir .

What i did was kill /home process, and rename it to home.old.

Then i create a symlink

ln -s /mydir /home

it works until you reboot the server and the automount will take place.

May i know how to stop the system automount for /home? thanks in advance

you should check /etc/fstab that file contains all the automatic mounts when you start your system
