[thelist] User auth on php running as cgi on windows?

I'm building a small site in php that needs a login/password on 1 dir. Php
is running as a cgi binary on windoze. My only experience is working with
php/mysql on linux. So, 

1. is it true that http-authentication is unavailable to php running as cgi
on windows?

2. I have a vague recollection of a (very insecure) hack using a url token
or some such thing but can't find anything in google 

3. how do I do authentication without a database and without http

(suggested search phrases welcome!)

Thanks in advance
