I have been asked to enable the following kernel option:

   SetUID/SetGID - Allow directories to inherit their owner from the
   parent directory.

The generic kernel under FreeBSD6.3 is what we presently use on
the system in question and I see no commented-out option for

        We see in the fstab the following:

# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump    Pass#
#Default is for no SUIDDIR.
#/dev/mfid0s1a          /               ufs     rw              1       1
#Living a bit more dangerously, we turned it back on.
/dev/mfid0s1a           /               ufs     rw,SUIDDIR 1    1

This looks like it may address the issue, but a test shows that
it does not appear to happen.

        Where do I use this option?

        This seems to be my day for asking strange questions but
I have run up against a couple of things that are not in my
usual sphere of knowledge and nothing jumped out at me from
