Preserve Permissions with Copy [Solved]

How can I copy a file or directory while preserving ownerships and permissions?  It appears that after a copy, the permissions always change to "nobody", regardless of what they were before and who owns the file/directory.

Thanks, C._Jack.  Have not had time to test, but apparently copy -pr or cp -a should work according to man cp.
