i have the ypserv 2.18 tarbals, and trying to configure my computer(I'm curently using Debian) as NIS server.
so i follow the instruction from the o'really "Linux Network Administrator"
after ./configure on the /usr/sbin/ypserf-2.18 -> then I type make -> and then make install -> and then make clean

it is true, that after i've done all the instruction, in /var/yp/ there is a Makefile that i must edit,,,,, but when it comes the time i run make in this directory ,,, the result is like this :::

dayusita:/var/yp# make
/bin/sh: line 1: /bin/domainname: No such file or directory
/bin/sh: line 1: /bin/domainname: No such file or directory
make[1]: Entering directory `/root'
make[1]: ../Makefile: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../Makefile'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root'
make: *** [target] Error 2


is there is something i've missing? please ,, i need your help

thanks for the attention, sori for my bad english
