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 have a NIS client running Red Hat Advanced Server 3. The system is not allowing NIS accounts to login through ssh or gdm. Telnet works. The NIS master is a Red Hat 7.3 system. NIS is not configured to join the password and shadow file together. Has anyone configured a Red Hat Advanced Server NIS client yet? Is anyone seeing the same problem?
last line in /etc/password on NIS client:
error message when trying to login with ssh from /var/log/secure:

I finally fixed the problem. I was not aware that services had to be restarted after NIS had been configured to allow NIS authentication. After restarting sshd and gdm, all the NIS accounts started working.
