Yes, however, a few of those require root permissions which gets tricky as you 
DO NOT want to run internet accessable php scripts as root, in which case 
you're hosed. 

What I do it run a perl daemon as root that php then connects to as a client 
and requests actions, and the daemon will only accept connections from 
localhost. The perl daemon actually does all the root actions. 

There's several ways to do this, some more secure than others.. But in a word, 
yes it's possible, but you'll need to give it some thought.
