Write a wrapper in C or Perl and make it suid root (or whatever the owner of

your in.named is). Shell scripts won't work, though.

You should be able to do this with sudo. Just give that user privileges to
kill, or if you only want them to be able to "kill" in.named write a script
will find the pid for in.named and give them privileges to run that script.
Check out

Just install sudo; life will be much easier.

try su or sudo
su -c kill -HUP pid#
or sudo with rights to ndc restart

Use your crontab to restart in.named every 2 or 3 hours.
