DOS file attrib in LInux

Does anyone know how to keep DOS file attributes in
Linux?

e.g. MSDOS.SYS file has attrib SHR (System, Hidden and
Read-Only). But if I mount the DOS partition as VFAT under Linux and then move the file with command
mv MSDOS.SYS MSDOS.OLD
the DOS file attribute SHR will no longer exist if I reboot
in DOS. Linux cp command will do the same.

Anyone has an idea? Thanks!

    How about cp -a ?

    You should man cp (I think p is the one which preserves the permissions while a preserves attributes - well not sure - and not on linux right now to check).
