I would doubt that Microsoft would support NIS/NIS+ since NT 5.0 will
have kerberos.  I would think that this would be a replacement for NIS/

FYI...nisgina will also run on the Cytrix WinFrame package except for
not bringing back a login prompt after a log out.  However, the
disconnect works correctly.  Haven't had a chance to debug the code yet
and find out exactly why it hangs here.
