The capabilities of Sun and GNU find differ. Which are you using?
Basically, with Sun find, you're going to want something like this:
find / -user USERNAME -ls
find / -group GNAME -ls
With GNU find, you can use this syntax, but also have the option of:
find / -uid nnn -ls
find / -gid nnn -ls
If in doubt, 'man find' is your friend.
It's not the years, it's the mileage.
