I don't really know what you are trying to do but if it is a win machine, Filezilla is an exellent
ftp gui that allows you to do everything your trying to with linux filesystems, from creating
 dir's to setting 3 digit file/dir  permissions (ie 777, 755, 644) by simply right clicking on the 
file or directory selecting attribs and typing the 3 digits or even select them with tick boxes
if needed...
Hope this is of some help...
