Here's the much belated summary. Thanks to
The problem's resolved.
1. Change the ethernet address to equate to the IP address based on the
ethernet address shown in the boot message. Once done, cd to /etc/up
and "make ethers"
2. arp cache may still have the old h/w address. Look at the man page
for "arp" and do a "arp -d" to zap the old address, and "arp -s" to
install the new one
3. The old system(NIS server) may still have the old NIS maps w/ its
original IP address. Boot the old system to single-user mode, mv
/var/yp to /var.old & mkdir a new /var/yp; then reboot.
