I just found this page:

I've done a fair bit of NIS stuff with Debian and Mandrake,
so it looks like some of the stuff in there (e.g., the
/etc/sysconfig/network file) is Red Hat/Mandrake specific.
However, the general outline seems right for Debian. Step 8
in particular seems like the place where you'd define the
slave server. (Bad as the terminology is, that's the phrase
you'll want to Google for: NIS+"slave server".)

Let me know if that helps you.
