As far as I know, RedHat doesn't support dtlogin, which is a part of CDE,
a proprietry Sun/HP/??? desktop. RedHat has KDE, Gnome and simpler X
desktops instead, which are all open source.

In any case, issues of dtlogin and automounting home directories are not
really a part of the NIS+ issues.

There are no specific packages for RedHat to do this.
