Well, once again, the list came through!

There were 3 replies:

Dan Stromberg
Brian Coogan
Bill Kastner

All three said to check the suid on the ping binary. It
should be 4555.

The permissions on the binary were correct, so I did an "echo $PATH"
and I found that someone copied the ping binary into a directory
that was before /usr/sbin in my path. The new binary did NOT have
the suid.

Many Thanks!!!!!
