AFAIK you can't protect particular files
only directory
for more information see TFM
and "How do I set up passwords for my web pages?" at
http://enteract.com/web_auth.html 


Generaly speaking, you may protect dirs by editing access.cfg or access.conf
(general webserver access control file)

and by placing  ACL file in directory_to_be_protected
This ACL file usially named access.www or  .htaccess
(depend on webserver)

Some Webserver, like Novell Webserv allow you to set restriction based on NDS rules

Best way is to place the half that needs to be protected into a subdirectory and password protect that subdirectory.

You didn't mention the web server but usually, you just need to do what I mentioned above.

Let me know if you need more details.
