I'm replying to this twice, and changing the subject here because I
didn't want to (completely) hijack the thread. What I'd like to ask is,
how important is it to change your UID/GID for F16 and what would happen
if you just left everything the way it was? I doubt that I'm the only
person wondering this, and I think we'd all be better off if we knew
just what risks we'd be running if we decided not to bother.
