Can anyone help me with this? Basically I'm trying to get something like this setup:

http://www.sigup.com/p/sigs/ for my website. When you put in the password you can then view the directory. But then you can still hotlink the images.

Can't have it both ways. Access is protected by password whether you view the directory or link a picture.

You can turn on "don't browse directories" feature if you want to prevent people for looking into your images directory without the benefit of specific URL.
