Have you read the comment on MD5 enabled passwords at
installation time? There's an explicit mention of breaking
compatibility against "older" (i.e. non MD5 capable) UNIX
variants, IIRC.

Check your /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow on the Linux boxes to make
sure you use plain DES passwords if you're stuck with NIS. This
is some kind of FAQ, try and read the available doc.

If you don't understand or are scared by any of the above
ask your parents or an adult to help you.
