How can I create a way to have my users login?  I'd like to have it where when they first access anypage of mine, a login dialog box pops up.  How would I go about doing this?  And I'd obviously need to keep track of their login id, so when they make comments or submit input, the person's id who's bmitting the input can be recorded.  Thanks!  Sorry for the low points, they're all I've got!

You need to make a Session Variable in the Global.asa file.  Inside a file, put a Session("User_ID") in to area of Session_OnStart.  Then, this variable will be assigned a value when user login and clear when they leave your virtual root.

In each homepage after the login page, you may check the Session("User_ID") variable.  If this variable is equal to null.  Then, redirect the user to the login pages.

<% If Session("User_ID") = "" Then
      Response.Redirect("redirect.asp")
   End If
%>

OK, but how do I get a login dialog box to pop up?  That's the effect I am aiming for.

You may use VBScripts to send a input box to a user for input their information.  then save it in the session("User_ID") variable.  It will then ok !

I've got a much better solution: HTACCESS
you can check it out here: http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/tutorials/user.html
basically, you creat a file called .htaccess
in the directory of the webpage, and the server automatically requires a password to access all file in the directory.
also, you can have a username and passwd file called .htpasswd
and use environment variables to find username, i think it's in CGi HTTP_AUTH_USER environment var contains the username, any way  check it out, it's great if your server uses ncsa httpd
