Remember that Wine is a Unix application and must communicate with the 
operating system using Unix system calls - even if the underlying filesystem 
is FAT. Unix does not have the "Archive", "System", "Readonly" or "Hidden" 
flags so Wine cannot have them either.

Actually, Wine sets the Readonly flag if the file permissions would prevent 
the current user from writing to the file, and the Archive bit is always set, 
but all other flags are clear.
