Apache autentication using AD

I have set up an Apache 2.2-server on my Ubuntu server with autentication using Active Directory on Windows 2003 Small Business Server. So far, so good..  But when an authentication fails (a user giving wrong username and/or password) then the login-prompt remains on the screen and the user can try again and again and again... Who can I prevent this from happening?  I.e. giving the user an error page instead so (s)he will have to go back and start again.

No, this is not a very big issue......

I've got a sneaky suspicion that this might not be possible without without using kerberos, but if you can it'd be good to know.

It seems to me that when I fail to login three times in a row I get the error message "401 Authentication Required". And I think that I will be satisfied with that.. :-)
But: Where can I change the number of times you can try to login before one gets this error-message ?

In your browser, if configurable at all. That message is being send each time by the server but displayed by your browser instead of the login box only if you failed to supply the user/pw three times, i.e. the server continues to reply with 401. So it's a browser issue but not a server one. The server always replies with that message and status code 401 if authentication is required and the browser did not supply username+pw (or supplied user+pw did not match).
