Our hard drive crashed and we restored a backup under Mac 10.3.9. 
Unfortunately we lost the executability of the files.  The icons do not 
show up and we have to manually click "Open With" and choose Word/Excel/etc.

I have an old backup that has old data, but all of the executibility, 
permissions, and resource forks are still preserved.  Is there anyway to 
transfer the executibility and extended attributed (-XE) but not the old 

Thank you for any help, it is greatly appreciated!
