Watch Question

normally you can create a hidden folder by add a dot infont of the folder name like this

mkdir .hiddenfolder

so the folder can not be see in normal way, but still can see using ls -al

if the folder already exist, try create as mentioned above and copy the data inside .

but why hidden it, try to thinking of protect it, that's mean restrict users to access other folders except his own by using chroot, have a check here http://www.tjw.org/chroot-login-HOWTO/
