It can be any number. The only thing that you will run into is that a
lot of scripts refer to that number and it is used in any rpm's that you
Where did it come from you ask? It has been reserved for use by FreeBSD

Subject: [vchkpw] vpopmail uid/gid 89
Can somebody explain what I need to do in order to change the uid/gid
vpopmail to something other than 89.89. I have poured over the archives
looking for a way, but I can't find anything that explains how. Is
some special reason it needs to be 89?
I have tried going into some of the config files and I found a couple of
places where it specifies 89.89 for the uid/gid. I have even tried
these to what I want them to be, but now my qmail isn't working.
some of my files, I discovered some of them are owned by user 89 and
89, so I have changed those to vpopmail.vchkpw. And of course, I have
changed /etc/passwd && /etc/group to reflect the uid/gid I want to use.
there something I am missing?
