imapd blues


I want to setup imapd on my system, but I'm having trouble with 
authentication. I'm running Red Hat Enterprise 4 and it looks like 
cyrus-imapd is configured to use saslauthd. I'm also running NIS and
the host which is running imapd is not the NIS master, so the password 
needs to be fetched out
through a yp call of some sort. I ran across a program testsaslauthd 
which also fails when I
try to authenticate myself. So I figure my problem is in the saslauthd 
configuration. Can anyone
give me some words of advice? Is it possible to get imapd just to 
authenticat through NIS
password? Or through pam or whatever?

Cheers. Steve.
