Permissions Question

Is there any way to set permissions on a file so that it can never be deleted. I've got a lock file that must be persistant. Users must be able to read and write to the file but must not be able to delete it. Thanks!

how 'bout the sticky bit? "chmod 1777 filename or directory"
