NT 5.0? do you mean Windows 2000?
And do you mean "make an undeletable file" thorugh IIS? Yes, go to IIS, open the virtal FTP directory properties, and select Read-Only (this is for entire directoy).
If you want that only one file have read permissions, go to that file, select properties/security and give read permissions for everyone.
Hope this helps.

I don't have a clue what IIS is.
And can I use that on a public ftp?

Assuming you already have ftp running. All you need to do is what AndresM Said. Give your file read-only access. Then copy that file to the ftproot directory on your server.

Hope this helps

ftp is a "File Transfer Protocol" that doesn't know anything about the filesystem type of your target server. It will work on all types of UNIX, Windows or other machines, but only to transfer files. If you want to change (if you are allowed to and even able to) file access on a target system you will need a shell on that system. I suggest to rlogin, telnet or whatever you can do and then do your task.

So the answer is NO!

there's a way but i advice againt it
rename the file you upload file.ext in file.ext<space>./<space>/
in that way only system admin can delete it
but don't do it if you can
this practise can easily saturate public ftp server and make it die!

That's crap, none of these statements is true! If you don't know anything about file systems then please don't post comments like this ...
