[CentOS] Moving the Home dir to new server

Is there a rpm that can be installed via yum for nis?  In reading the 
HOWTO, some of the referred to components are present, yet others are not.

Also, the port mapper is not running and I am not sure what man page 
addresses that.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
