	To use Fetch to "set permissions" do the following:

1.  Choose "Remote"(menu at top), "Set Upload Permissions..."

2.  Remember that "Owner" is "4", "Group" is "2", and "Everyone" is "1".
Therefore, to chmod 755, you check the boxes for "Read" (all checked),
"Write" (owner and group, only), and "Search/Execute" (owner and group,

	Hope that this helps.
