Hrmm, deinstalling nis and installing it again worked. This is getting
Windows like, except that reboots are not necessary.

What should I do however for clients that do not have shadow passwords? Is
there a way to give them a "made up" password file with entries from real
passwd and shadow mixed? (security reasons aside)


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
