What is the OS you are using?  In Linux/unix, `chmod 644 *R' seems to be what is 
asked for.

Further guessing: Red Hat Linux is in conflict with unix tradition (and 
many other Linuxes) and uses 664 as default permissions. This is 
because they have abandoned the traditional user/group distinction and 
put every user to a group of their own. People disagree about benefits 
of this scheme, but RH is proud of it. 

cheers, jari oksanen
