Setting up folders read, read/write?


I am new to Linux and need help setting up a couple of folders. I want to setup two folders, one folder will be read only and the other folder will be read/write. How do I do this in Linux? Can the read and read/write be set by individual user? thanks for any help.

This link goes strait to the file permissions portion, but I would suggest reading the whole document. It helped me a lot when I first started using linux.
