This is not the answer to your question, but I would suggest that if
you want a proper understanding of what setuid() and other set*()
commands do and a much better understanding of UNIX, I would suggest
that you get the "Advanced UNIX programming" and "Advanced Network
Programming" By Richard Stevens. These books will help you a lot more
than you can think of.
Linux poses a real challenge for those with a taste for late-night
hacking (and/or conversations with God).
