I'm not sure if this would be an easier or a better wa y to do this, but
it might work. Just add the spell normally, as if it were for all races.
Then put something like this:

if (GET_RACE(ch) == RACE_HUMAN) {
   send_to_char(ch, "Only ogres can cast this spell!");

It would work (I think), and it would be relativly problem free.
