Abstract                : Recently, support have rationalised password security on the
                          internal network by implementing "nis".
                          
                          Now, to obtain login information, use the command:
                           
                               ypcat passwd
                          
                          or   ypcat passwd | more       (or your favourite pager)
                          
                          David Horton has developed a nice little tool for one-off 
                          conversion of a login to the corresponding full name. It is:
                          
                                 /home/horton/bin/fn
                          Usage: fn loginname     (works from feijoa, at least)
                          
                          e.g.
                          
                          feijoa> /home/horton/bin/fn jane
