[Samba] Running "net join" from web page

Hi all,

i'm trying to make a linux box join a windows domain by calling "NET
JOIN" from php/perl.
The join works perfecly when used from the command line.

I made a perl script that runs the actual command, set-uid it to root
and ran it from php.
Then i got this error: 
[2004/12/16 14:33:24, 0] libsmb/clientgen.c:cli_initialise(251)
libsmb based programs must *NOT* be setuid root.

How can i make "net join" run from a webpage/perl setup? Have anybody
else tried this?

BR and thanks,
