Password access to link part of site

I need to create a link to a part of my site that I only want certain people to goto. There can be the same user and passsword for everyone and these are not customers and so dot need to have a great database to access. I also need the pages not to be found by accident when searching for other things. I am using Dreamweaver MX and uploading using filezilla.

by using a robots.txt file. This is a notepad file (don't use a word processor) that sits in the root of your server space and lists pages that search engine spiders should ignore.click here for more information about that.

As far as password-protection is concerned, the best way to do this is to use a .htaccess file and if you click here you'll find out how to do that.
