ok, i've set up nis (and even nis+, shudder), but never ldap. my main
usage for nis has been to ease admin of accounts - add a user to one
box, make and bam, yer done. never really used it for automount maps,
hosts (uh, hello, dns?) or the rest of the crowd in /etc.
with less then a dozen boxes is it worth it to use ldap? what else will
ldap give me? in the future i'll probably integrate these boxes with
a network that does use ldap, but it will be a different ldap domain
(correct terminology? - i mean this like a domain in nis terms). most
likely i'll use that ldap tree just for email address completion in mutt.
