In Unix, a user with write permissions in a directory can create, rename
and delete ANY file or directory within the main directory. The permissions
on the idividual files/directorys doesn't matter!
What You CAN do is to set the sticky bit (chmod +t) on the main directory.
If the sticky bit is set, only the owner of a file/directory can remove
and/or rename it. This is perhaps not exactly what You want but may be
Ps. I'm a Solaris user but i beleve it's the same in other Unix/Linux systems.
