Yes, I do agree with you that Debian 1.3 broke NIS - but not the latest
version of disks. I decided to test the latest disk set 1997-05-30 (I
can't remember the date of the last 1.3 disks) and NIS now works for me -
you must make sure you say No to shadow passwords during the setup as well
(I think it defaults to yes if you press enter).
