i think more importantly than a copy of nsswitch is to simply not start the
service upon startup.
you probably use redhat; i think the startup scripts are /etc/rc.d/rc3.d for
non-graphical startup of /etc/rc.d/rc5.d for graphical startup (it has been a
long time since i used redhat). for suse, it's rc2.d and rc5.d.
one of your scripts starts ypserv, the server for NIS. it's probably called
something like S[0-9][0-9]ypserv or S[0-9][0-9]nis. first kill the service
./S[0-9][0-9]ypserv stop (for example)
next, disable the service by moving
S[0-9][0-9]ypserv to s[0-9][0-9]ypserv
S[0-9][0-9]nis to s[0-9][0-9]nis
change the starting S to a small s. they won't be run on startup if they
begin with small s.
while you're at it, no doubt you're running portmap. move the portmap
startup script to a small s as well.
