How do I control the number of downloads?

Tell me if this belongs in another category......
Here's what I want to do:
I want to offer some material through a webpage, as .htm files, probably zipped with a bunch of gifs and an index included. A person would pay a fee, then recieve a password by email which would allow them one download that must be done by a certain date.
I know how to set up an ftp download from a webpage. How do I set it up to take passwords? How do I allow only one download per password? How do I make the password "expire"?
I have a shell account.
