Linux Quicky. after effects of changing a uid or gid, on a user or group.

okay, lets say you have a basic understanding of linux. and you find out you need to have the same uid and gid between a couple of servers for say NFS sharing. At this point i would point out using some shared service, like LDAP, or NIS, for user control would be idle. but it is to late. you have established systems. and you need to change these users to match between all the systems. AND you need to update files after the change.
