Yes, you can use Forms Based Authentication.

Here is a tutorial on how to create the storage database for FBA and how to configure it on SharePoint 2007: http://www.devcow.com/blogs/jdattis/archive/2007/02/23/Office-SharePoint-Server-2007-Forms-Based-Authentication-FBA-Walkthrough-Part-1.aspx

Are you using SharePoint 2007 or 2010? On 2007, you are limited to one authentication type per zone.  If you have some content that you would like to have two authentication types for, you have to create a new zone for that content and setup the authentication for the second zone (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc287734(office.12).aspx).

cahpmanjw has the right answer.  Forms Based Authentication is your option if you want to create authentication for sharepoint that is not based in Active Directory.

Chapmanjw ,

Thanks again, It might be right but i will explain my requirements again to make sure.

My organization requires out side user (who is not working in our organization) to login our public sharepoint 2007 site & access only one of our intranet subsite.

So is it possible to just create userid & password for particular site, so that he or she get access to that particular subsite. with out creating account in AD.

Note : our sharepoint site changes to https://intranet when users sign in from public site

Yes, it is possible.

You have to have two separate zones of your SharePoint content.  One configured for Active Directory.  And the other configured for Forms Based Authentication.  You will have to create a new URL for the second zone that is publicly accessible (like intranet.yourdomain.com).

You have to do it on the web application setting in SharePoint central administration as well.

Might be simplest to remove the extended application and recreate it once more, this time with no host header.

It took me a minute to remember, but I never, ever, use the host header setting in SharePoint.  I always setup the AAM afterwards, otherwise it has issues.
