    Hello. I wish to share a confidential file (about 500-700MB) with friends. What is the best way to set up a password protected website? I have iWeb 1.1.2 but it does not seem to have this feature. Thanks.

    If you're hosting on MobileMe it's suppose to have some options. Otherwise, if the web server is Apache based then you can password protect a directory using a .htaccess file. You can easily find material on that with Google. Some web host also offer an interface to set this up as well so I suggest checking with your host.
