Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I configured a SUSE enterprise 10 server as NIS and also a fedora 6 NIS client. I have made sure that all the services are running both in the server and client (from google help). When I boot up my client machine, it even lists all the users that I have created in the server. But when I try to login it says. " Incorrect username or password".
If I enter the client system using the local username, and then if then run "ypcat passwd" or "ypcat passwd.byname", I can see the users in the NIS server.
I have checked the yp.conf, nsswitch.conf, etc/sysconfig/network and the etc/hosts file. They all look fine, but still I cant login to the client, even though the users I added in the server get displayed in the login screen of the NIS client.
The SUSE server has also samba running and I can join the samba domain from windows client machines.
I have configured the Server through yAST and then through the terminal also, but no luck.
I have also disabled the firewalls at the Server as well as the client.
Since I run a university Lab, kindly advise me...please
