Hey Mike -

Try something like this in your httpd.conf or .htaccess file:

<Directory /www/site.com/public_html/secret>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks (or whatever)
         AllowOverride None
         AuthName "Secret !"
         Authtype Basic
         AuthUserFile /www/site.com/.htpasswd
         require valid-user
	Order deny, allow
         deny from all
         allow from

that may or may not work :)
