RE: useradd 12345



Yes.  Defininately it is possible.  Run linuxconf as root.
In the user accounts, normal, user accounts-you can modify the UID number.

Make sure the same Account and UID are across all of your machines.
Otherwise, it thinks you are a different person when you try things like
rlogins and rexec commands.

Otherwise, modify the third column (: seperated) in /etc/passwd.

hello,

Have you tried adding an entry to the /etc/aliases file?  I tried it
and it work.  Or, try to add a letter(s) before the number.
