Setting folder permissions

Hi,
I have a folder called "Public_Documents" on my web server. The documents in
this folder should be accessible to everyone.

I want to create a sub folder here "Private Documents". Only the server side
web service must have write permission on this sub folder. That is because,
the server side web service will create documents in ths "Private Documents"
folder, read it into a memory stream and will then delete the document.

This "Private Documents" must be inaccessible to everyone else so that they
do not open the folder and read those documents.

How can I create and set this folder permissions to give ONLY the server
side web service write permission and no access to anyone else?
