Will state problem clearly..  

It's not a libc6 problem.  It's a "newer version of NIS won't talk to
older version of NIS" kind of problem.  I have already verified this on
our machines at work.  For some reason, the new NIS clients in the new
Debian package don't like talking with the older version on the Master

If this is simply my probem, fine.. lord knows I didn't try to do
extensive troubleshooting when it wouldn't work.. however, since it's
only a new version, it should have extended, not replaced the existing
framework of NIS, that kind of thing goes against every RFC out there.
