Make part of external disk read only

I need to make a folder on an external disk (USB stick) read only - i.e. users should not be able to delete it. This is for a client who wants to pass some marketing material on free gifts.
Is it possible to create multiple partitions on an external disk? Can I make one partition read only?

you could zip the folder, with a password on it
7-zip does it free http://www.7-zip.org/
or use folder encryption software, as also suggested in the article below

you can create multiple partitions on an ext disk, and hide the partition
