       ypsetup - set up the yellow pages (YP) environment


       A  local  area  network	must  be  set  up on your system before you can set up YP.  You must know your system's default YP domain name and
       whether your system will be a master server, slave server, or client.  If your system is to be the master server for  your  YP  domain,	be
       sure  no  other master has been established and be sure the files to be distributed are in the directory Note that the files to be distrib-
       uted should be modified from the original files by removing the root entry in the file.

       If your system is not to be the master server, be sure a master already exists for your YP domain.  Once you  know  this  information,  run
       with the system in multiuser mode and answer its questions.

       Once  YP  is installed on a machine, it cannot be used until the file is modified to contain YP entries on the desired database lines.  The
       command reminds a user to run or edit the file manually.
