NIS documentation wrong?


It the nis documentation it says I can + and - users in the passwd file (I
take it that it should be on the fly and it used to work with debian 0.93
in this case...) - however I can't seem to do this.  The following two
lines are in my /etc/passwd file:


However, here's a finer:

[root@merope:p1:~] finger karl
Login: karl                             Name:
Directory: /home/time                   Shell: /bin/bash
Never logged in.
No mail.
No Plan.

This shouldn't be the case, should it?

Can someone tell me what I'm supposidly doing wrong?
