Rest All file permissions Like a Fresh Install

Hi All,

I was wondering in linux if there is a way we can rest all file permissions like we have just done a fresh install. I know there used to be a way in SCO but does anyone have an idea if this exists in Linux?

Which distribution? SuSE has a handy script for tasks like that, and I'm guessing they aren't the only ones.
