In the live system from theSimply Linux 6.0.2RC2 DVD, attr is not installed,
although it contains basic helpful utilities for setting the properties of
files in filesystems, for example, turning on/off compression in ntfs-3g --
http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-advanced/data-compression/ :

# Mark a directory for compression (on a small-endian computer)
setfattr -h -v 0x00080000 -n system.ntfs_attrib directory-name
# Disable compression for files to be created in a directory
setfattr -h -v 0x00000000 -n system.ntfs_attrib directory-name

I suggest to add "attr" to the live system, so that such properties of files on
mounted filesystems could be managed from the live system.
