Autofs will automatically query the NIS map on startup. That's all I

Is there any automount program for linux that can use automount file
or NIS map used in Sun's automount?
We have a linux PC that we'd like to take advantage of the department
NIS, but so far the only automount I could find was 'amd', which
didn't understand auto.home file used in suns.
Since I'm not a sysadmin for the NIS server, and we have mostly suns and
hps, it wouldn't be practical to ask the sysadmin to administer another
NIS map just for amd running in linux.
Any relevant suggestion is welcome.
