[svlug] YP and SSH interaction?

When I ssh from my work computer, which uses yp for login and home
directories, to my home machine, which doesn't, there is a very long
delay before I am asked for my password. Sometimes I get the
mettus [mettus] 133> ssh home.ettus.com
do_ypcall: clnt_call: RPC: Timed out
which is followed by another delay, and then a request for my password
Once the connection is set up, there are no more issues. The only
other thing I run into is that sometimes that machine takes a while
to start to get web pages which the Win machine on the same hub gets
immediately. Perhaps there is some DNS interaction?
Anyone have any ideas?
P.S. Its a not-so-stock RH 7.1 i386 system.
