No, Debian uses the standard libc5 NIS, while RedHat uses a diffently
compiled libc5 with NYS support. Note the difference (NIS - NYS).
After 1.3 is released, all packages will be converted to GNU libc (libc6).
GNU libc has proper and complete NIS (and soon NIS+) support. The NIS
code is based on libc5 NYS but is even more complete.
