Permissions problems are being a huge PIMA

I do the 99.999999999% of my email activities from a nice comfy chair, in a 
nice comfy heated house.

My pair of Kubuntu installs are in the garage (rarely fired up in colder 
weather because the car is in the way) and in an outbuilding that is only 
heated enough to control the dew point and protect the machinery there from 
rust, as it likewise gets relatively little use when the temps go below 
about 45F.

The machine in the shop runs 24/7 though, so it is 'mounted' as a cifs 
share, and this is where the PIMA starts.

Because the *buntu's start their user number schemes at 1000, whereas the 
rest of the known universe starts at 500, even though I am the user gene on 
both boxes, I have no write perms via cifs in the /home/gene tree on the 
milling machines kubuntu install.

So that I can save a useful bit of rs-274 nc code directly from an email 
received on this machine, directly to the /home/gene/emc/nc_files directory 
on that *buntu box in the shop, what then is the std procedure to establish 
that the user gene=500 on this box, is the user gene=1000 on that box?


Cheers, Gene
