Presumably, you installed xdm after installing shadow. shadowconfig edits
/etc/init.d/xdm to switch between using xdm and xdm-shadow, so all you need to
and all should be well.
P.S. I have a feeling the NIS problem appears under 2.0.30 kernels and
downgrading to 2.0.29 should fix it --- don't know why though.
