Indeed. You would set up the smbd to sync unix passwords
and call a local program that set's a users password as
root, then does a make in the yp domain directory to push
the changed password out to the NIS slaves.

You still end up with two password files, but users in
both have the same password.



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
