NIS Server/Client setup


Im a newby to linux and trying my best to get things going but really struggling to get off the ground in places. I need a way for linux clients to log-on to a linux network using accounts ?(like a windows domain). I have believe a NIS server/client setup may be the way to go but i'm not to sure if this is the best way and I've tried to follow the How To's but I just cant get NIS to work at all :( All the step-by-steps I have found tell me to use the yp programs like 'make' etc BUT HOW? Does anyone have a NIS step-by-step install and config guide for a beginner to understand ? I just can't find one that is clear and understandable...
