I have moved the code to configure the NIS domain and server from
Linuxconf core, so it can be disable on systems without NIS. I have added
also some inter-module messaging abilities. This module reacts to the
various user account management messages and update the NIS
database. It does that by executing the /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/nisconf_update
utility (which does "cd /var/yp && make").
You can turn off this automatic update right in the NIS configuration dialog.
