Linux NIS+ RPM

Thanks a lot for the RPMs. I really needed them, and the installation of the 
RPMs was painless.

They seem to do the job for me. I had some problems with nisinit. The script 
is supposed to start and stop the NIS+ deamons a couple of times, and seems 
to assume that you stand on the top of the nis-utils source directory. It 
anyway failed some times for me trying to source ./etc/readhat.rc.
It was also unable to find the new nsswitch.conf.

But the initialisation seemed to go OK anyway.

I think it would be nice if you could get Thorsten Kukuk to place the RPMs on 
his Linux NIS and NIS+ page. You anyway need to read the information there to 
get NIS+ up and running.
