This didn't have any effect. I changed /etc/exports on the server as
suggested above, restarted rpc.nfsd, remounted /home on the client, but no
joy. I'm not sure what you mean by tweaking yp.conf. There's no man page
for it, and I already have it set to bind to my NIS server. There's no
indication of other options available.
