Search for ypserv package or service-name.
If its there then probably you have NIS installed on your box.



The following is a list of NIS server daemons and their functionality.

portmap - The foundation service for RPC

yppasswdd - Allows users to change their NIS passwords

ypserv - NIS server daemon

ypbind - NIS client daemon

ypxfrd - The NIS map transfer daemon

For that purpose i google and found http://www.linux-nis.org/nis/ypserv/index.html download ypserv-2.19.tar.gz and extrack it. I can see

etc,lib,makedbm,mknetid,revnetgroup,rpc.yppasswdd,rpc.ypxfrd,script,yphelper,yppush,ypserv,ypxfr and files like install-sh,mkinstalldirs etc etc

Please guide me that how can I install these services so I may start my NIS server.

Don't get them from rpmfind, use the RH repositories; that'll be safer.
