I got a lot of useful information from the O'Reilly _Managing NFS and
NIS_ book, along with man pages.

a working, multiplatform, documented yp is one of my favorite things
about NetBSD.  I can bring a box from scratch up in less than an hour
(install media permitting) and have it folded into my network, complete
with automounted home directories.  It's very nice!
