Not a substitute for gaining and utilizing understanding of chown, chmod, chacl, sticky bits and
the rest of file access and permissions, but a way to lessen the pain in the meantime:

Put the files to be transferred into an archive (.zip, .tgz, etc), and put the archive on the RM,
then extract from the archive onto the destination. This can be facilitated by an OFM[1] that
simplifies transfers into and out of archives. For the purpose of facilitated archive creation the
one I usually use can be had from http://silk.apana.org.au/fc.html but extraction can also be done
with MC from a shell (and any number of apps in other OSes as well as Linux) as well as an archiver
directly.
