How to 'chmod' on an NTFS ( or FAT32 ) partition?
Trying to make file executable on USB, but the permission doesn't “stick”

I have a fat32 file system, which i mount from the gui file browser in 11.10, i can create and edit and save files in the mounted partition but I cannot set the execute bit in it. i tries chmod +x but that also has no effect even when i do it as root. It seems that execute permission is being turned off on all files by default on mount from GUI. Is there a way to turn it on so that every time I mount i can execute files
