Safe change of uid
Just finished a fresh Lenny install and added an account for my daughter
-- and kuser assigned it uid 500 instead of 1001, which I must correct.
After looking at man pages and archives, I see that kuser in the past
has done well creating accounts but not modifying them. Is that still
true with the version used in Lenny? Is usermod a better option for
dealing with this situation or would deleting and recreating the account
-- either using kuser or userdel -- be the simplest and best method?
Please cc me as I am not currently subscribing to the list.
