Description Joshua Buysse 1999-04-27 21:50:16 UTC
If we want to be compatible with Sun for shell-scripters, a
small change to /var/yp/nicknames is necessary.

The nickname 'hosts' resolves to 'hosts.byaddr' in RH, and
to 'hosts.byname' in Solaris/SunOS/everything else.  Please
update this on the next YP fix...
