I recently asked the same question under Apache (now I can spell it right :), but can I do the same thing under WinNT4 with IIS?

That is, can I password-protect HTML pages (or a directory) like this site (Experts Exchange's home page) ??

If I can, then can I also telnet into the NT system from remote site and configure parameters?  Or should I be in front of the NT box?

Please Help!

You can take advantage of IIS ability to tap into NT NTFS security.  And this will only work if you have NTFS (NT File System) installed instead of FAT file system.

navigate using window explorer / my computer till you arrive at the directory / specific file location.

Right click on the file / directory that you want to protect,
choose properties.

Go to the Security Tab and take out IUSR_machinename or deny all access to that user.  This will force NT to authenticate using a different user thus it will ask for a valid NT username & password.  Make sure also to add the user (that you can create in NT User Manager) / group to the file/directory permission list and give them at least read permission (well, most of the time this will be sufficient).
