How to hide a file on IIS but have it accessible to all users through ASP?

I suspect that's not possible. I tried to change file attributes 
(make 'em hidden) and then edited the folder-view-preoperties. Windows-
Explorer hided the files I changed, but IIS kept on showing the files. 
I can't figure out a way to do it. :( 
But I really am curious of the reason why you'd want to do that. When 
you can access IIS, then you probably have got administrator-rigths. So 
why would you hide a file for yourself? (Or do you want to hide files 
for colleague-Admins? * Devilish grin *).
Beste wishes,
