Re: Re(2): [K12OSN] Couple of questions


There are some differences in the group id numbers you'll find in RH 6.2 and
the newer RH 7.2 that K12LTSP 2.0 uses. You'll run into problems if you
simply copy the files from one computer to another. (going 6.2 to 7.2 won't
work, I'm not sure but you might be able to go 7.2 to 6.2...???)

I'd suggest just grabbing the lines 500 and up from those files. That would
get you all your user info but leave the other user and group id numbers

It's much easier if you are running the same version of software on all the
machines. Of course, when does that ever happen???  ;-^)
