What's a NIS+ server doing in a kernel. I mean, IIRC, there is no such
thing and it wouldn't even make sense for it to be there.

Maybe he has confused nis and nfs. Although I'm not sure why nfs should be a
kernel space daemon either. Maybe for performance reasons, or maybe just the
range of things NFS must do calls for it.
Thanks for the links, I'll check them out. For starters I will work with the
nis package already part of stable, a copy of the O'reilly nis and nfs book
is floating around somewhere at work. That should be enough reading to keep
me busy a while at least.
