Anyone care to tell me what these attributes are? How is the "read-only" attribute different than: -r--r--r-- 1 james users myfile Or what the heck is a "system" file?

I guess archive means "back up this file", but what the heck is such an attribute doing on the file instead of the backup settings? Are these attributes similar to ACLs? James Rich email@example.com
