Spent several hours today setting up a new LCD iMac and OS X to mount NFS home directories, read user accounts from NIS, and authenticate via Kerberos. Worked great, I went to dinner, came back, and it was dead. Window Server would die several seconds after login. Mark and I were able to resucitate it eventually—by upgrading it to Mac OS X 10.1.5! We only thought of it after almost an hour of uninstalling today's new components.

If you've got an account on the ACM cluster here at the U of I, drop into the ACM office and try logging into the iMac on the desk just inside the door (where the Ultra 5 used to be, and the Ultra 1 before that). It should work now.
