Louis,
Try this in httpd.conf
Auth_MySQL_General_DB http_auth
This in .htaccess
AuthName "Name You Want To See in Pop-Up Login Thingy"
Auth_MySQL_Encryption_Types MySQL Plaintext
Auth_MySQL_DB http_auth
AuthType Basic
<Limit GET POST>
        require group SomeGroupName
</Limit> 

That should do the trick.
Van
