Just a quick note: I have not access to a true NIS environment, and I
never had the time to build one around here. I thought of combining all
the available pointers in the sources of the yputils available out there,
but again I've run out of time. Unfortunately, nobody with enough
knwoledge seemed interested enough to take a look at the NIS part. I
suppose the client part is working, but other than that ...

Yes, that is true. I barely have time to drink some cofee, I becomed a
losy mail reader, I don't like that, but hopefully this will end real

But, if anyone wants to take a look and start working on NIS, I promise to
forget about my exams and give all the support :-)

UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
