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?

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

Commented:
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.
