Hi,
  I am creating a webpage for a soccer league and I want to password protect the page with rosters/player names. What would be the easiest way to do this? Do I need a CGI script. The actual script would be very appreciated!! :) thanks.

The easiest way is to do that at the level of the filesystem of the  computer on which the website is runnung. No need for CGI. on Unix-based systems, you should use the .htaccess file for that (don't ask me more about that). On NT systems, you can set security in the windows explorer.

If you want to use CGI-scripts and store the username/passwords in a database, that is also possible. Then it very much depends on what CGI-language you want to use. If you are on NT, use ASP (it's the easiest), if on Unix, perl is probably the best.
