SD & Leopard File Ownership

I'm having some problems migrating my user account from a SD created sparseimage to a new leopard installations.

What happened was:

Installed Leopard using archive and install and all was cool everything worked fine.

I guess by the date on the sparseimage backup that SD continued to use it's scheduled backups to update my Tiger backup.

I decided (for reasons too complicated to explain) the I wanted to do a clean install of Leopard

Now when I try to transfer my user account to the new Leopard installation using migration assitant many (if not all) the files in the user account seem to be owned by root not my account.

This really screws up the system.

Any one got any ideas how to fix this.

A couple of things I've thought of:

Use a Unix command to do a mass change of ownership of all files in my user account. Anyone know what the Unix command would be?

The only other thing I can think of is to chmod all the files to 777. Don't like the sound of that!

Any help or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
