Are you suggesting that you're running NT 4 with FAT partitions?  If so, 
setting your CYGWIN environment variable to ntea is your only option for 
getting chmod to work with Cygwin.  If you use NTFS partitions, you're better 
off setting ntsec.  Since you've already read the user guide documentation, 
I'm sure I don't need to point you to the page that describes these settings 
and what they mean.

Hope that's helpful to you,
