Fix to ypbind init script to read DHCP provided NIS servers
This init script will use NIS servers provided by DHCP. It requres an
additional variable to be set in /etc/sysconfig/network: DHCPNIS=yes
I did think it was a good idea to have the init script look
in /etc/yp.conf for the domain name but I didn't think that
action should be governed by DHCP.
Please try ypbind-1.19-9
The fix will not get into RHEL-3.
