Subject: nis+, samba, FNS and printers

I have a network running nis+ and my printers are being served via an 
FNS context. The nis+ master is also running samba and serving printers 
via smb to Windows 2000 and Windows 98 clients. There is some problem in 
the setup that I have been unable to track down where my printers 
disappear and reappear. I am thinking of junking the FNS but I am not 
sure of the way to go about it. How do you remove the entire ctx_dir? 
Will that have effects other than on the printers? 

Has anyone done such a thing before?  Any help would be appreciated.

(I'm also thinking of moving from nis+ to regular old nis. Anyone done
