While I'm all for helping people to help themselves you have been
peppering this list with questions over the past couple of days and have
not shown us that you are making an effort to solve the problems on your
own. I'd encourage you to use Google and other documentation available
to research the issue.
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/NIS-HOWTO/ would be a fabulous place to start.
This list is here to help when you can't find a solution on your own or
to help point you in the right direction. Its not the best spot to outsource
your IT requirements to.
