What FTP program are you using to upload with?
The "how" depends on the "what" for this one
Try doing a search in the HELP section of your program and search for "file permissions" or "change mode" or "chmod" it should be in there somewhere.... and maybe you can just right click on the file you want to change and it might be there too...
Let us know
p.s. directories and scripts created/uploaded to the cgi-bin are automagically set to 755 by default
