Description of problem:
When using NIS authentication, it seems rather in-elegant to edit the
local accounts and then have to run 'make' to rebuild the nis files.

Could the redhat-config-users be modified to allow you to select the
source of the user accounts ?  

A good example is the user manager (dxaccounts) for Tru64 Unix.

Thank you for the suggestion. It was passed along to product
management, but not committed for a future release.
