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 find.
Where did it come from you ask? It has been reserved for use by FreeBSD and it has just become the standard.

I have poured over the archives looking for a way, but I can't find anything that explains how. Is there 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 changing these to what I want them to be, but now my qmail isn't working. Looking at some of my files, I discovered some of them are owned by user 89 and group 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. Is there something I am missing? _________________________________________________________________ Is your computer infected with a virus? Find out with a FREE computer virus scan from McAfee.
