Use the autofs to mount it when you access it and it will also un-mount
it when done. This avoids the need to do it at login but makes it
available (if present) when you try to access it
you can also symlink the directory from the /net dir (possibly assuming
redhat like distros.) to where you want
ln -s /net/alfred/common /common
will automount the share and do the needful
some help on the autofs auto-mounter here for redhat like distros,
others will presumably be very similar
