chmod is the command your after. but the user changing the option has to be the owner.

Look at
for help with file permissions.

If your using a gui, right click the file and goto the tab permissions. Where you will be able to change the files if you own them.

You need to use the chmod command.

To change the owner, use chown
And to change the group, use chgrp

Mental note: next time... type faster.
