	I haven't checked your new release so this might have changed.

	I use NIS with pam_unix_* on my machines (redhat).  I seem to remember
that with non-pam distros the passwd program would detect that NIS was
being used tell the user to use yppasswd instead.  Was this
functionality left out on purpose or am I missing something?  My
programing skills are not up to changing a suid root program, so I don't
even want to try to change it :)

	Is anyone working on integrating pam into yppasswd?
