Any system administrator with systems in a NIS+ domain, willing
to give me access to such a system (preferable Linux, Solaris is fine
too) helps me a lot.
With an 'ordinary' account I can start on the read-only-access
implementation of nisplus. If a NIS+ administrator grants me more rights
I can also implemment the read-write-access implementation of nisplus.
