Question Linux Capability

Is there anyone having experience with Linux Capability on a kernel 2.4.x ???

I set the CAP_SETUID to my process using cap_set_flag() and cap_set_proc() and it returns sucessfully.

Then I drop my root privilege using setuid(1001)
and try to set to another user with setuid(99) and I keep getting premission denied...
I dont know if someone could help
