Actually, to someone with a clue, it's fairly precise. Alas, that wasn't me. I'm not in the target audience. A portion of the pre-filesystem gets copied to the post-filesystem. 'Tisn't clear whether one needs to specify a complete /etc/login.defs . What I eventually did was to change my UID on F14.
Any Fedora developers care to comment here?
Although documentation is a major source of frustration in the Open Source world, the other guys aren't really any better. I just got a great pop-up on Win 7 today: "A program running on this computer is trying to display a message." It gave 2 options: "View the message" and "Ask me later". I mean: WHAT??
