First I want to wish you a happy new year :-)
I've a owner-problem with my Windows XP.
Most of the files which should be owned by "Administrators" are owned by
4294967295, an unknown user.
$ cat /etc/passwd
How to chown all files from 4294967295:18 to 544:18 or, at least, recognize
the files to be owned by "Administrators".
chown -R ... would not work because it will chown all files. Also the files
not owned by 4294967295.
chown -vR --from=4294967295:18 Adminstrators:SYSTEM ...
chown: invalid user: `4294967295:18'
Thanks in advance
