Allowing access to ports < 1024 w/o root

I need to set up an application to run in a script which will be running as a web server but is a database. I need to allow users to use the web server but the app must be run as root in order for the ports to be accessible. This is not a very secure environment would like to know how this could be solved.

I just need to know the basic commands and concept and I should be able to figure it out, hopefully!?!?

what operating system? if it is solaris, then you can set up a specific "role" for the users to use by incorporating RBAC.

Thanks for the reply!

I didn't think the OS mattered and that's why I didn't mention it. I thought there was a general "Unix" way of doing this. But, if it will help, the OS is OS X (BSD implementation). I have become quite disappointed in Apple in the last few days as I am discovering they have drastically changed the Unix core to a more proprietary OS than most Unix distributions I have worked with.
