    Is it possible to password protect specific files within Mac OS X 10.4? If it is, is there an option to do so in the operating system or do you need to download/buy an application to do so?

    You can use Disk Utility to create an encrypted disk image, drag the file to it, unmount it and delete the original.

    Your choice of 128 bit or 256 bit AES. Plenty secure to keep your p0rn safe. I'm kidding....
