Hoping someone can help me fix something that I apparently messed up, i have
the issue that when I untar a file as root the uid and gid that get set are
not roots'.  I had change a user uid and gid to 1000 via usermo -u etc....
but somehow it appears to have effected the root user.  When I touch files
as root the correct uid and gid are root, however when untaring an archive
the directory and files are uid and gid =1000.  Hope someone can point me in
the right direction....oh yea, running centos 5.4, and when I run the
command id = uid=0, gid=0, etc,,,,all appear to be right for root....Thanks
in advance.
