ls shows only userid and groupid instead of username and group name

I'm trying to make a rescue linux filesystem that will be booted via NFS trough a PXE enabled NIC.
I can boot right now, the kernel loads perfectly and remote file system is mounted, however, I have constructed the file system in a command by command basis, I mean, when I get an error, I copy the missing file or library to the new fs.
I now, can run commands like cat,more etc, however the ls command reports userid and group id instead of username and groupname /etc/passwd and /etc/group are there and readable.
What file do you think can be missing in my new filesystem?
