The best and easist way to do this is to create a Subweb under your main site. You can then easily manage your users to the subweb by setting unique permissions and even require them to log into the site by removing anonymous access.

From FrontPage - Create a folder in your site. Right click on the new folder and select convert to web.

Double click on the new Subweb and the go to Tools, Security and setup you permissions. Make sure you select to make unique permissions for this site.

The users will then need to be directed to http://www.yoursite.com/subweb

Hi,

If you want to have it protected by Frontpage itself.  Here is a detailed tutorial:

Hi,

In fact there are many complaints against Frontpage permissions.  Persons who used them in the past have ran into problems.  I prefer using a more direct method.  Have protected webpage in your website.  Use a database to verify your users.
