So you're saying that even though the ad backend is working, you'd still 
have to do this manually? Mine all have ID's I entered manually, but I 
do not have that many users. Is there possibly a way to add a script 
that runs on user creation that will find the first free ID in a range 
and set it for that user's uidNumber and gidNumber?
