folder owner/group weird
As root, I untared a file with tar -xvzf and the folder that got extracted had owner listed as '52400' and the group as '24067'.

To be more specific, I was untarring phpMyAdmin-2.6.3-pl1.tar.gz

and when doing a ls -l, it displays

drwxr-xr-x  7  52400  24067    4096 2005-07-04 14:53 phpMyAdmin-2.6.3-pl1
-rw-r--r--  1 root    root    2767000 2005-07-17 20:35 phpMyAdmin-2.6.3-pl1.tar.gz

why is there that weird '52400' and '24067' instead of 'root' and 'root'?

tar files keeps owner and group settings when decompressing as root, since root can access al files, it's not a problem. If you issue the command as a user the file will be decompressed as owned by that user.
