Did do. But Jason is certainly not doing, nor understanding, what it
says there.

I must say, as a wintered DNS man to whom the NIS business is anathema
(nasty experiences in the past, old-fashioned), that the whole concept
seems horrible to me. Perhaps that's 'cos I'm addicted to new-fangled
things :)

DNS, even on a small scale, works so well, and all sorts of Unices work
with it (try and implement NIS or LDAP on a SCO OpenServer machine) that
to me it's the chosen path for this kind of thing.

And don't forget I've become a 100% LDAP-minded person.
