seeing/setting file or directory owners from win9x just like from nt/w2k

Hi All,

Is there a way (speak command/wsh script) that allows a win9x 
workstation that is logged into a samba domain server (running 
onlinux for example) to see from the workstation what owner a 
certain file or directory has? 

Under win2k the "dir /q" command does this adequately.

And if this is possible, is it then possible for someone to change 
the ownership of a file to another user or group from a win9x 
workstation, assuming that the person logged in has sufficient 
rights to do so of course.

Many thanks,
