I need help - 

1. What should be the configuration of nsswitch.conf
file when I want to make a Unix box both PDC (by
configuring Samba as PDC) as well a NIS server.

2. what should be the value of following parameters in
nsswitch.conf file?

   a)  passwd = nis files
       group   = nis files


   b)  passwd = nis [NOTFOUND=return] files
       group    = nis [NOTFOUND=return] files

3. Can I have users/password in etc/passwd, smbpasswd
as well in yppasswd?

kindly reply.
