Hi, I found the problem.  SUSE 9.2 Pro has a rfc2307bis.schema file too,
which contains everything that the nis.schema file contains, and a whole
lot more.  removing nis.schema thus has no ill-efect, but removing the
rfc2307bis one makes ldap complain about missing attributes from
samba.schema.  So nis goes..... :-)
