Default Login & password for webpage


I'm very naive in these matters, so this question could either have a simple answer or a very complicated one--I dunno.

My ISP gives me 10 MB of free web space, which I'd like to use to park files for others (members of a club) to download. I can FTP files to the web space, but I'd like to protect some of the files with a password/login scheme so that not every Tom, Dick and Harry can get them.

Is this something that I'd have to get my ISP to set up, or is there a simple freeware-type of utility or easy-to-use commercial software that will construct such a "gateway"--as I guess it's called--or is this something I'd need advanced knowledge to do (PHP programming, etc.)?

(Mac OSX, BTW)

Thanks in advance!
