autofs doesn't work automatically with NIS mounts; workarounds?

I can't get autofs to work with my NIS mount maps automatically. Once
I'm up, if I restart autofs (reload doesn't work) it will then work
I've tried various workarounds I've found on the Internet but they don't
seem to work or aren't practical; for instance, I set
in /etc/sysconfig/network, didn't help.
I could put a long sleep in the autofs startup script to get it to wait
until networking was actually up, but this seems clumsy at best.
Any other thoughts? As I understand it, this is an issue with
NetworkManager startup returning successfully before the interface is
up, so there is no networking available when autofs gets started.
