Setting capabilities for a user


I read somewhere that you can set capabilities for a user. For eg, if i set the capability CAP_SYS_MODULE for a user, will that user be able to load a kernel module. if so how can I set a capability for a user ?

As for user capabilities, I'm unsure what you're referring to. If you need information on user/group permission settings, there's a good overview here.
