Got NIS working, with shadow passwords too, and now looking at sharing
home directories among machines.
The simplest way I can think of is to export the whole /home tree and
mount it on /home on foreign machines, but this could be a lot more
expensive than I'd like. I tried to get my head around autofs and amd
but I couldn't find any clear "do this on the server" and "do this on
the client" docs to get that lot working. Would I have to have a
seperate line in /etc/exports on the server for each home directory?
