There is a much more interesting page that was only announce on
the mailinglist:

I tried this and it first seemed to work nicely:

	- niscat etc  worked
	- I could login to this nis+-Linux-Client

But at this I and somebody got problems with the nisplus server.

Thorsten couldn't reproduce this problem.

I haven't tried it since then and this machine has moved into a freebsd
controlled by my collegue.

I think it doesn't make much sense to play with the client only stuff.
