NIS+ Setup

I just need to know how to setup NIS+.  I read the literature on the 6 types of NIS objects and all the terminology (per man pages).  But it doesn't show me how to
set it up.

Read the NSKit 1.2 Answerbook on docs.sun.com - since you did not mention what platform or operatin system you are running, I could at best point you to the Sun doc site ...on the docs.sun.com homepage, click on Installation and Setup under System Administration - then click on NSKit 1.2 Answerbook - a lot of information on what you seek is given there.
