RFC Editor Note:

RFC Editor, please change section 1. of the document as follows:

OLD:

1. Introduction

   This document describes four options for passing configuration
   information related to Network Information Service (NIS) [3] in
   DHCPv6 (RFC 3315 [1]).

NEW:

1. Introduction

   This document describes four options for passing configuration
   information related to Network Information Service (NIS) [3] in
   DHCPv6 (RFC 3315 [1]).

   The options defined in this draft can only be used to configure
   information about NIS servers that can be reached using IPv6.  The
   DHCP option to configure information about IPv4 NIS servers
   can be found in RFC 2132 [4].  Mechanisms for configuring 
   IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack applications are being considered, but are 
   not specified in this document.

And, please add an additional informative reference:

          Extensions", RFC 2132, March 1997.
