Granting user access rights to "cardctl eject"

Some card types cannot be safely hot ejected.  It is  recommended that always use ``cardctl eject'' before ejecting.  I would like to grant users access rights to execute "cardctl eject" instead of having to sudo the command or granting  privilege rights to users.   /sbin/cardctl has been setuid root(-rwsr-xr-x  1 root root 19133 Feb 22  2005 /sbin/cardctl), and users have been added to 'disk' group.  It still got error message "ioctl(): Operation not permitted".  So I guess I'm missing something.  But I really have no clue!

Here are system infomation

OS: FC 3 2.6.12-1.1381

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

chmod +s /sbin/cardctl might work, or try modifying /etc/sudoers so that the users have rights to sudo only for the purpose of cardctl, usually the syntax for /etc/sudoers is explained in the file, otherwise "man sudoers"
