I want to know how to make a page accessible only by a password: url/page.htm?pass=PASSWORD etc

PHP Man, Jason Ross, John Jones,

This is really not a good idea, for a number of reasons. The biggest 
that it allows for easy brute force attacks against the page, etc.
That said, $_GET["variablename"] is typically how you would refer to a 
variable which is provided in the url (though you may possibly need to 
reference it as $HTTP_GET_VARS["variablename"] depending on the 
of php)
i hope that helps.
