Repairing permission, what's an SUID file?

Hey there.
I'm trying to repair permissions on my Mac Pro running 10.5.1 with Disk Utility, and I get this list of things it doesn't want to fix.

Code:
Repairing permissions for “Macintosh HD”
Warning: SUID file "usr/libexec/load_hdi" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DiskManagement.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DiskManagementTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Versions/A/Resources/runner" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Admin.framework/Versions/A/Resources/readconfig" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Admin.framework/Versions/A/Resources/writeconfig" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "usr/libexec/authopen" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/OwnerGroupTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.
Any idea what these are and why it can't modify them? I've never had problems repairing permissions cleanly before.


thanks!

(oh, running DU off the hard drive, not the disk)

Awesome.
thanks.
They all sounded important, and freaked me out, like someone had control of my remote log in stuff.

For the record, and SUID is:

Later versions of the Linux kernel will even prohibit the running of shell scripts that have this attribute set.
