thanks to all people who reply, especially crist clark who point me to 
the solution

"Second, are you sure "nemo" is the right name? You need to use the
_first_ name that comes back when the system tries to do reverse
resolution on it. What does,

    $ perl -MSocket -e '(undef, undef, undef, undef, @addrs) = 
gethostbyname("nemo"); print scalar(gethostbyaddr($addrs[0], AF_INET));'

and i got instead of nemo
so i look at /etc/hosts, and found nemo after
so i correct it, and now it works
And for the nis trouble, i just added nis master in /etc/hosts and it's 
ok now
Don't understand what it happened with /etc/hosts, before reboot 
everything went fine...
