permission problems

I'm an SGI Indigo and Irix 5.3 user, and use Netscape Navigator 3.01.
I have a home page and want to link my NN bookmarks.html to there, but NN always sets the permissions of NN bookmarks,html to -rw------- even if I set it before to -rw-r--r--, thus others can't visit my bookmarks.
I don't want to copy this file to can people visit.

So, how can I solve this without copy the file?

Thanks,
Gyula

Your umask is probably set to 066 - set it to 022, and the links should have the right permissions - make sure "umask 022" is somewhere in your login profile.  See the man page for "umask".
