On NeXTstep and OPENSTEP there is support for both a /Net directory that is a
location for network mount points (it is not a mount point itself), AND /Net*
dirs for app/library paths in the default search path.

These directories do not, by default, exist. Neither /Net nor /NetApps,
/NetLibrary, etc. are created by the installer...but /NetApps and /NetLibrary
are searched by the Workspace Manager for apps and services (/Net is not,
ever: that would be a Certified Stupid Idea).

By the way, there is only one "Admin" directory -- /NextAdmin. /LocalAdmin and
/NetAdmin are not searched unless you specifically add them to the path with a
dwrite, where /LocalApps and /NetApps are automagically supported (like
/LocalLibrary and /NetLibrary).

When you mount an NFS share, it (by default) mounts on /Net/hostname/path,
creating the deep path if necessary.
