I don't use fstab to do nfs mounts anymore...that's so yesterday  ;-)

but the answer is no...there are no nfs mounts in fstab needed when you
use autofs

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Automount.html

this is a good general explanation...
http://tldp.org/linuxfocus/English/January2001/article141.shtml

There are a lot of benefits to doing it this way...they are soft mounts
and not hard mounts. I can change the mounts simply by changing LDAP and
not having to change each computer (LDAP is not necessary for autofs but
is certainly a big plus).
