All the files where changed to UID 1000. This problem did not occur with Knoppix 3.2.

All the Fedora install is changed to UID 1000?  Or just your 
home directory?

Seems you ought to have a different partition for your 
Knoppix persistent home directory.

When I boot from the Knoppix 3.3 CD, I use the codes: knoppix myconfig=/dev/hda2 home=/dev/hda2. Everything works okay until I back into Fedora. Once booted in Fedora, I quickly find out that knoppix 3.3 changed the ownership of all my files to 1000. Therefore, I can't login as a user. I can log in as root and then I have to fix all the permissions and ownership problems.
