To check whether the command is setuid, type the following:
# whereis fileshareset
This should show you where the executable is. Then cd into that directory and 
# ls -l fileshareset

In the output you should have something like:

-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 59980 2006-05-02 17:38 fileshareset

The 's' flag in the first group of permissions means that the file is setuid. 
If it is missing (e.g. -rwxr-x or something like this) than the file is not 
setuid and you can switch it with the command:

# chmod u+s fileshareset

(You need to be root to do the last thing)

Hope this will help...

Blade hails you...
