NIS+ sucks. Don't use it :) Besides it being a bear and really have no
real relation to NIS Linux support for it is still under development. We
use it at UTD only because we have to on the Sun systems, but we don't
have the Linux clients configured with it at all.

OK, I'll stop now before I get myself in trouble :)
