No, there is no executable bit to set in the Windows attribute set. 
How are you copying it?  When I read files off a floppy, they are
often all copied with their executable bit set (which is annoying).

Yes, Red Hat and other vendors arrange your environment in this way
on purpose.  This is felt to be "best practice" because it makes it
harder for you to accedentally execute a trojan...  If you wanted,
you could modify your path in .bash_profile in your home directory to
include the current directory (add it to the END of the list).

A Congressman was once asked about his attitude toward whiskey.  "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it. "

"But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it."
"This is my position, and I will not compromise."
