Which FAQ ? The one on http://cygwin.com ? I don't recall such a thing.
Cygwin provides the chmod utility and you can change the permissions of
your files as long as you are running NT-like operating system, the
partition on which the files reside is NTFS and you have set the
CYGWIN environment variable to contain 'ntsec' (without quotes).
If you're using NT-like OS and have FAT formated partitions you can add
'ntea' to the CYGWIN variable but this has some sideefects.
Maybe you need to read the FAQ again - start with this link:
