Urgent help required for set UID/GID Permission


Can some one explain me wht does "s" or/and "t" in each of the following set
UID/GID programs:

/usr/bin/passwd
-r-s--x--x

/bin/su
-rwsr-xr-x

/usr/bin/chsh
-rws--x--x

/usr/bin/newgrp
-rws--x--x

/usr/X11R6/bin/X^1
lrwxrwxrwx

/bin/ping
-rwsr-xr-x

/usr/bin/write
-rwxr-sr-x

/bin/mount
-rwsr-xr-x

It would be really great if some one could really help me in this.

Cheers

Use your favorite web browser and google up a copy of 'newbie's linux manual'. There's a good instruction set on permissions and how to change them.
