Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have two users on a pc who mount their ~/Documents and ~/Mail from my fileserver.
For one user (UID=1000) this is fine, I created /Documents and /Mail while logged in as
that user and the mounted NFS to that place, rw'ed.
UID=1001 has slightly more problems. I create /Documents and /Mail and the NFS shares
are mounted. I then find the owner ship of this has chaged to UID=1000, and so can no longer
be written to from that user!
I log in as root and it says I don't have the permission to change the ownership of UID=1001
/Documents and /Mail!
I had the same problem and solved it like this (by nuking nfs' poor security...)
# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).
if I can remeber well, the "annouid=1000" was the key: your 1000 and 1001 users will read and write as they were both 1000.
