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.

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
