groups for every available nis user should give
"users" "audio" "plugdev". but the users provided
by the NIS server are only in group "users".
so I'm looking for something in /etc/group like this:
where +* should mean all NISusers.
now "groups anynisuser1" should give "users audio".
or is something else possible, like putting one group in
another group? like:
to put all people who are in the group "users"
additionally in the audio group?
thanx for helping.
