    not sure exactly what your looking to do you mentioned a page and file share which to me indicate 2 different thigns if your just looking to password protect a folder if can be done in the sharing tab in 95-ME and in the access control button under 2k, if it's XP home I don';t think you can and XP pro i'm not sure how to I don't run it...

    oh and if it's linux you'd edit your smb.conf and select the username that has a login on the system that has access tio it.

    No you got the concept wrong I am trying to pass protect a website I a have hosted on my smb mount.
    Now the question is do I have to pass protect the smb mount or do I have to pass protect the index?

    you'd want to password protect the index itself, probably using .htaccess for most servers... webservers don't care about SMB share password as far as that goes, you can p/w protect the share for local security if you want but the webserver won't pass the password to the SMB share itself...
