redhat 2.1 linux chown problem



I have a directory
775 /u01/app/oracle/jomarmgr/jcust/users with jomarmgr:jomarmgr ownership.
a file exists in directory FILEA with with 644 jomarmgr:jomarmgr ownership.

I try to change ownership from jomarmgr to perltest
I get "Operation not permitted".

It turns out that it appears that root is the only user allowed to change
ownerships.

I have tried putting the perltest user in the jomarmgr group and the
jomarmgr user in
the perl test group and reboot -- but this still doesnt work.

Any ideas?
