Suidperl : permission denied

Hello,

whenever I try to execute suidperl (as root)
I get Permission denied...

the file permissions are:

permission 4755
user: root
group: root

Any hint?

Thx!

Dave.

I've tried... still not working...

I've tried to change permission, owner... everything... it really seems not to work...

I'm using Redhat FC1...

I have:

PHP Version 4.3.4

Do I need PHP 5 to use suidperl?

In the end I compiled speedyCGI and build a a binary... so I will use this one as a replacement for suidperl...
