1. You can chmod +s on the executable. When the program runs it
   will take on the user and group ids of the owner of the file.
2. Download ftp://ftp.cs.colorado.edu/pub/sysadmin.sudo which is
   a program that allows any program to be run suid. You can also
   use it to restrict users to certain programs.
