Binary input stream to file

I want to read the input stream (HTTP POST to an aspx page) and write it to a file on the web server.  Want it to be binary friendly.  This is my amateur attempt to write the code...

            System.IO.StreamReader sr = new System.IO.StreamReader(Request.InputStream);
            System.IO.StreamWriter sw = System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes(appSettings["fileDirectory"] + fileName, sr.ReadToEnd);

It has some type and overloading problems.  Any suggestions?  Thanks a lot.

Ok, so for this ASP.NET 2.0 problem, here is what I would suggest:

      using (BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(Request.InputStream))
      {

        int length = (int)Request.InputStream.Length;

        byte[] buffer = br.ReadBytes(length);

        File.WriteAllBytes(appSettings["fileDirectory"] + fileName, buffer) ;
      }

1) The using block will Dispose of the reader implicitly at the completion of the block

2) Use a BinaryReader to get the bytes

3) Write the bytes to the file, without the StreamWriter.
