NIS and Linux Clients

I run a NIS network at my office, and am looking at running FreeBSD as the servers (NIS Master and Slave). All the clients in the office are currently running Redhat 9.

Everything that I've read up on the net, says that FreeBSD uses a different approach to handling the password file. That it doesnt use the shadow file. However, Ive read that there's a way to customize the Makefile for NIS to push the passwd file so Linux clients can use it.

Does anyone where I can find information on how to set this up. Or does anyone know of another way to make NIS on a BSD server work with Linux Redhat 9 clients.

Thanks in advance.
