I recently installed the Cygwin toolset, and have a small question about user
names and user ids. Say I have an account with username "joeuser" on the win2k
machine where I installed the tools. This "joeuser" user has administrator
priviledges on that machine. When I run the 'id' command after starting the
tools(bash) when logged into the win2k machine as "joeuser", the output
indicates that my username is "administrator", with a uid of 500. Is there any
way to have my username in Cygwin match my username from the win2k
environment? This would be really handy for using ssh.
