IO.File.CreateText Logon failure

Using ASP.Net/VB.Net 2, I am trying to write to a file from a WEB App.
When I use the code -
Dim oWrite As System.IO.StreamWriter
oWrite = IO.File.CreateText(CorrectFileAddress)
I get the following error -
Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007052E)

Everything runs fine when on the LocalHost, but when it is deployed to the Live Web Server (IIS6), then I get the error.

Make sure that the account your asp.net service is running on has write access permission to the folder you are attempting to write to. Depending on your server's Configuration/OS, this could be the Network Service account or the ASP.NET account. You can see which user account it is using within the IIS management console.
