Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.  You've just saved me a week
of fiddling and hating my life :-)

  Very small (5 node) cluster, needing to share a small number of
users and home directories.  Unsure of whether to use LDAP, NIS+, or

  Don't use any.  Instead, copy /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, and
/etc/group among them, and export /home on one of them.
