Problems changing permissions

Hi Folks:

I am trying to change the ownership on some files in a Qmail
installation, on a FC3 server.

I am logged in as root, and when I issue the chown root:root -R bin
command, I get an error that says that changing ownership is not
permitted

Here's a snip of the output

[root@srvweb-02 vpopmail]# chown root:root -R bin

As far as I know (how do I check for sure?) Selinux is turned off

Heres the output of the directory listing

 [root@srvweb-02 vpopmail]# cd bin
[root@srvweb-02 bin]# ls -al

[root@srvweb-02 bin]#

The files right now are chmod 777 as part of a test -- as installed they
are 755, and will be returned to that state once I can change the
owner/group



Can someone please suggest a course of action to solve this?
