No we are not using NIS.
it is a large directory i am listing. actually it is the /usr/home
directory, and is probably the largest on the system. However "ls -l" runs
for close to six minutesand spends the 10 seconds scrolling the screen with
the results. so i wait ls to start showing the results for about 5 and a
half minutes. Even on a older and much slower system i've never seen it
talk more than 15 seconds to complete.
