How do I set IIS authentication permissions for directories below WWWroot

I am running a dedicated web server under NT Server 4.0 and IIS 3.0 (this is a stand-alone server, not a domain server).  Unrestricted clients come in under the default IUSR_computername account; some (but not all) of those clients can log on to a protected directory.  

How do I set user permissions for that directory, which resides one level below WWWroot?  Also, how should I create the user or group which has access to that directory?

Remove the access rights for Everyone, Guests, IUSR_computername and similar accounts on the directory. Add  rights for the users you want to be able to access the directory.

Grant the Log on Locally user right to the user or group which has access to that directory. This user or group can either be an account local to this computer, or a domain account if you're in a domain. Make sure that you haven't restricted Everyone's access rights on the winnt drive, as the user accounts used to log on need access to some DLLs and such.

Didn't answer how to create the actual group, but a good job nevertheless.

Well, this can be any account in the account database. Either a local, created in User Manager, or a global from User Manager for Domains.
