Important Question
Authored by: gcastaneda on Oct 07, '05 08:41:11AM

Thank you for a great hint!

Because I am totally new at doing this type of tweaking, and I dont want to mess up anything, I need to ask this:

In NetInfo, I have duplicated "unknown" into "unknown copy." However, "unknown copy" has "99" where the "-2" values should be (the only user I have with "-2" values is "nobody").

For this hint to work on my machine, do I make a duplicate of "nobody" and make the changes there? Or do I just make these changes ("99" to "-3") to my "unknown copy" user? Also, do I need to make changes to other fields (i.e., home)?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I believe changing 99 -> -3 in "unknown copy" will work.
