i looked at the file that you askedmme to look into . Although i didnt 
understand which part i had to do in it ..because everything in th network 
is set up and working.
when i am logged on to main nfs server as root and when i try to look in the 
home directory, it would list all directories in th enetwork whose enttries 
are in the nis+ table, except the one machine that i set up. The previous 
sys admin guy told that i have to add the entry by doing nistbladm -a ....,
he also said thati could take a look atthe existing entries by doing 
something like niscat ....
butthe name he said which i assume that wass the table name , when i did 
niscat follwed by that name , it said not found.
Is there a way for me to know what tables are there on my system . I dont 
even know if there should be more than 1.
Also even after I find out the table name , what exactly should i type 
nisstbladm -a and then what the new machine is called dome.
ALso is procedure called setting up a client or what . because the 
documentteaches how to set upa aserver, a client etc. but here everything is 
set up just need to add this machine in the table
thanks in advance
