I need to configure apache-httpd for protecting (to demand
a login and password) when accessing some script or page.
I know that for CERN-httpd there is "Protection" in .conf
files, but don't know how to set it in apache. Can somebody
help me???

It involves setting up three files: .htaccess which resides in the direcory you want to protect, .htpasswd which holds the username and passwords, and an optional .htgroup which makes groups of users.  You can find out how to set them up at these locations:
