I didn't realize that Linux has file attributes seperate from permissions and ownership and different from the Dos file attributes.

Somehow I had the idea that when attributes were discussed in Linux, they were the same attributes used in dos, i.e., read-only, hidden, system, and archive. Now I know better.
