Wikipedia already provides descriptions and examples of this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setuid

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sticky_bit

You should check out that documentation and then use this thread for more specific questions if you have any. BTW, I'm moving this to Newbie, so that it may get more adequate exposure.
