Add NIS User to video Group via PAM


I need to add users who authenticate via NIS to the video group in order to use the nvidia driver's ability to direct render for VMware Player. I have added
auth optional pam_group.so
to /etc/pam.d/login and /etc/pam.d/xdm, and I have added
*;*;*;Al000-2400;video
to /etc/security/group.conf

Everything I can find indicates that this should work, but when I log in as an NIS user, I am still get an access denied for the nvidia device. (the device is owned by root and the group video, others have no rights.)
