nis problem?


	I'm trying to set up NIS on a pair of Debian servers and get the
following errors.  Any suggestions on what to fix or what bugs to report
(all software is current stable version):

tcsh# adduser favor
Adding user favor...
Adding new user favor (1020) with group users.
Creating home directory /home/favor.
Copying files from /etc/skel
Unknown error
passwd: unknown user: favor.
adduser: `passwd favor' returned error code 256.  Aborting.
Cleaning up.
Removing directory `/home/favor'
Removing user `favor'.
userdel: user favor does not exist

I've tried linking yppasswd to passwd to no avail.  

Any and all ideas welcome!
