Thank you :)

I've setup a slave NIS server on my test machine and done some ypsetme
stuff in rc.conf.uea so it only tries to use itself as the NIS server (I
think, seems to work!). Only problem left now the NFS home directory stuff,
looks like I might have to be replacing fstab and copying my home directory
across every so often or something :) Maybe I could try make the little
menu thing a port if it's any use to laptop users, or maybe it's a little
bit too hackish for that.
