how to authenticate using generic password..?

if i am running IIS on win2K.. is there an easy way to authenticate a document folder of the webroot using some generic userid/password.

so that whenever anybody request for a htm document
will be fronted with a prompt to key in the necessary userid/password in order to access it.

Hi eriklee,
Yeah, a couple ways you can do this. You could just create some dummy IIS user account which eveyrone you want to access can use.

That would be the easiest way.  Alternatively, you can use some kind of scripting language (ASP, PHP, whichever you prefer).
