How to setuid root


I am installing jffnms for monitoring. After I install nmap the instuctions say Nmap should be set-uid root. I am not familiar with how to do this. When I searched the man page it didn't give me a syntax example.

Thanks

Could you be more specific as to what the syntax would like?
