Reservations for System UID/GID
I have a question regd. reservations for the system GID's/UID's in Redhat. I understand that numbers <500 are reserved for systems and >500 for users. In the former, is there a range that is reserved for private use (like the 10. range in the case of IP addresses)? I need to create a system group and user and specify a GID and UID and I would like to make sure that the numbers do not conflict with some other package.
