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.
