https://bbs.archlinux.org – Yeah, as I said above I didn't think the username part was necessary.  But the uid and gid are how the system keep track of file owndership.  So that is the important part.  One of the first things I had to learn about stuff when moveing from osx to linux is that the two use very different uids and gids for their systems.  So while I was still dual booting, I would always use 501 as my uid so that I could easily share files.  That way I could keep default file permissions in my home (or /Users in osx) folders.
