The thinner the clients the better in the long run, but perhaps, since I really only have about 2 weeks to do this project (and I have never configured nfs or nis before -- I hope it's simple.  

I will start with X being run local (unless the URLS you have -- pleases send them to me -- make this look easy) and I guess I should keep /usr/bin local (but I will check my RH system to see where these files are kept).  I will just have /usr/local being mounted via nfs.
