NIS and Kerberos5 both have their own sections in the Handbook.
With pointers off to more (general) information.
For LDAP, I don't offhand know of a good source of information on its
pros and cons, but installing it is as simple as using the pam_ldap
port and following the directions it prints out after install.

To get more specific help, you'll need to be more specific in your
questions, I'm afraid.

Good luck.
