OK; "ypcat -k amd.home" is likely to be slightly more useful.

At this point, I encourage you to make use of the "amq" command.  It can
display a lot of information about what amd is doing & why.

Results from "ls -al" against certain directories (including any error
messages that may result) my well be useful.

I suggest you explore the above, and if you still have problems, re-post...
but you might try including some of the output (sanitized to the degree
that you think is appropriate) in the post, so those of us a bit more
removed from the problem aren't flying quite so blind.
