To use the groups on the nis server, change the file /etc/nsswitch.conf
on the ubuntu client, so that the groups line reads  'group:          
nis files'

of course if you want to ubuntu machine's groups to take priority, you
would reverse the order: files nis.  Basically this is just a search
order that determines which group list takes priority.
