For IIS start IIS manager, click down to the default web site in the folder tree on the left and right click on the folder you wish to enable browser.

Select properties from the content menu and click the directory browsing check box and apply.

If you are on a shared host with some ISP, you are stuck with whatever permissions are exposed by their control panel, or you can simply e-mail their support and tel them what permissions you want on that folder.
