    You will need to make a disk image instead with Disk Utility

    Or perhaps use a 3rd party hack

    I don't think yu can password protect a single file but you can create a sparse Image using Disk Utility.

    Here is the instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1578

    Only, don't forget to NOT check store in keychain if you want it to ask for your password everytime.
