The swiss-army-knife for dos/fat filesystems is mtools. But it's not all that simple to use, at least based on the little experience I have with it.

Here's the manual:
http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html

A quick search of apt turned up fatattr, though, which from the description may be closer to what you're looking for.
