On solaris 2.5.1 I want to set POSIX_CHOWN_RESTRICTED to 0.  This will allow me to change the owner of a file to someone else without being root.  How do I change this kernel parameter?

Put this into /etc/system

set rstchown=0

and then reboot. (boot -r; or touch /reconfigure ; then reboot to make sure it works)
