I have no idea why RedHat wants "organization" or why Solaris wants

distributions are invariably broken in some way.

Different vendors implement NIS in different ways. You can configure both RedHat and Solaris to use different attributes to get the information they want if you so choose. That is what I've done at Stanford. RedHat & Solaris use the same attributes now from our OpenLDAP directory.
