of them seem to work.
This problem is most likely related to the NIS problem also observed in other bug reports, but the fix they suggest does not work.

We have upgraded to FC3 and have applied the new screensaver rpm's
but are still unable to unlock screen while using nis+.

However, that file has not been changed manually, so should be the same
as is installed.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
