I have a ASP.NET 2.0/3.5 website with a "PrivateDocs" folder that I only access thru FTP. I know that placing a Web.config file is just about equivalent to Apache's .htaccess file. But what do I put in the Web.config file to block any possible access to those files within that private folder (except thru FTP permission)?

place this in your web.config  

<location path="PrivateDocs">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <deny users="*"/>
      </authorization>
    </system.web>
  </location>
