FOLDER permissions reseting in redhat linux


I am using redhat 5. I am trying to creat a folder that is writable by particular user only and read by other users.

When I log into a console as root and chmod wxr-x---, is works for about a day and then the permissions change back automatically somehow.

If this is the chrontab doing this, should I edit the chrontab, and how do I do that?

Is there a better way to make a folder writable by that user only.

Thanks!

What is the complete path to the directory?
What are the directory's permissions and owner?
What permissions and owner does it get reset to?

Additionally, you can set up 'auditd' and use it to track down what the hell keeps changing the permissions on that dir or file.
