I am just trying to install I Board power bulitin board but i'am having truble. It says to ftp the files up and chmod them but I don't know what chmod is?

This is a quote out of the read-me:
Now you are ready to place the files on your server. We recommend using WS FTP, which is available at www.wsftp.com. WS FTP allows you to chmod your files and directories and the click of the mouse.

Note: some hosts don't allow the use of 777 or in some cases, 777 keeps the program from running. Try using 755 if you have problems.

1) Open your FTP client and create the following directories as shown below. Remember to chmod them.

/boardpower/ drwxrwxrwx (chmod 777)
drwxrwxrwx (chmod 777)
/boardpower/variables/ drwxrwxrwx (chmod 777)

Thanks in advance!
