[K12OSN] Re: Adding Users



Well....

    I can help with the NIS.  I will be out of town for a couple of weeks, but we'll see what happens.

    Check out http://www.ibiblio.org/mdw/HOWTO/NIS-HOWTO/index.html to get started with NIS.

    Anybody else have a good HOW-TO for LDAP?

Dan

Hey Dan

I think that sounds like a better option - i'm going
to give it a try on two spare p4's - i'm sure i'll
need some help along the way though - i remember
seeing links to some user guides - could you point me
in that direction please.
