Changing flags only for directoires


I want to chmod all direcotries on one dir, but not files. How can be done that?
I copy tar.gzs from my FAT32 partition. Thy are all chmodded to 777. I want to remove the 'x' flag, but when I do $ chmod a-x * it changes the directories flags too.. that makes them unbrowsable.

Do something like chmod a-x *.tgz if you want all tgz files for be stripped of the exec bit.

Code:
find . -type d -exec chmod +x {} \;
, or "find . type d | xargs chmod +d" if I'm not mistaken.
