Place to discuss Slackware

I just reinstalled slackware. I had my /home partion separate in the old one and when i installed it set up to use the partion for the new /home When i went to log in with my normal user kde gave me errors about not having permission for some folders. So i loged into root and realized that the owners for all directories and files was 1001 or root. So how do i change those back to my normal user?
But even so, if you don't add the users in the same order they will be different between like distros. So as you say, you can modify the /etc/password file (or specify a user number in the useradd command). This also effects NFS connections if the user numbers are different. Thought you might be interested since you asked about setting up NFS shares in another thread.
