How come your Red Hat servers know who the uidNumbers and gidNumbers
belong to? How come the Mandrake and Knoppix machines don't? Do you, for
example, have a database (/etc/passwd, LDAP, NIS) on the Red Hat
machines and not on the others? Who has gidNumber 1064 on the Samba
server? I don't know why the Mandrake machine would make the dirs owner
