Set up webfolders to remotely manage website files

Windows 2000 Server, IIS 5.0

I have a website that allows anonymous authentication.  I have set up web sharing on the root folder (inetpub/wwwroot/SiteRoot)

Properties on the Web Sharing alias tab are Read, Write, Script source access, and Directory browsing...Application permissions are Execute.

NTFS security on the \SiteRoot folder is Administrators - Full control; Everyone - Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, and Read; SYSTEM - Full Control.  The box is also checked to Allow inheritable permissions to propagate...

I can access the web folder with all users that can get to the site.

Desired end state:
I would like to use web folders to allow remote administrators to upload and edit website files.  I do not want normal site users to be able to connect to the web folder, or see the directory at all...not even read only access.  I would like everyone who attempts to open the web folder to be prompted for user login at each folder access.

I don't know if I am spelling this out right, or if it is even possible to separate webfolder permissions from NT permissions but I guess we shall see.  Thanks in advance for your help  ;o)

I was looking for information on WebDAV...specifically, seperating the website authentication from the Web folders authentication.  You were the only one to answer though, so the points are yours.  Thanks
