I'm having a bit of trouble protecting my apache folders on a windows system.. for instance.. I want to protect www.mydomain.com/private folder by password or referer... I'm not having any luck with .htaccess files that used to work on a linux server... any suggestions?

do you have
AccessFileName .htaccess
directive on your main httpd.conf ?
Also check that
    AllowOverride All
option is set on httpd.conf

Why would you switch from *nix to M$ Windows, webserver run on *nix is a lot better than
M$ Windows.

To get back to your question, please the setting as mentioned in the previous comment,
also check the FILE/Directory path in both httpd.conf AND .htaccess to make your they
are correct for Windows.

Please read the following "Windows, Apache and .htaccess authentication" tutorial:
