The server logins were made the same as the two other machines, but the
UIDs are the default on all machines. On my machine and the server,
afore is UID 1000, lilo is 1002 on the server, and her machine has lilo
as 1000. If you go by UID, I can see where her machine would come up
with what it does, but I would have though that NFS would take care of
that. I have not had the problem in earlier version of Suse.
