For NIS using SUSE (pretty much any version)...

useradd -m username
passwd username

cd /var/yp

You can use YaST in SUSE to add the users... but you didn't say what version of Linux you had. In short as long as NIS is using the files in /etc for its sources, you can just add the user to the NIS sever and to the make mentioned above. SUSE and possibly others take care to not include userids below a certain value (used to be 500.. now it's 1000).
