More htaccess questions.

Here's the htaccess I'm using to protect my members area:
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/data/.htpasswd
AuthName MEMBERS
AuthType Basic

<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>

I want to be able to offer a "tiered" membership option allowing access to more withing my membership area for more money. So I need to protect directories separately. With the file listed above does anyone know if I can add some lines in??? I'd try it on my server but I don't want to mess with my present customers and accidently block them out. I'd basically be adding separate data locations for the password files to different directories. So does anyong know if I can do this --

AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/data/.htpasswd
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/vdata/.htpasswd
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/data1/.htpasswd
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/data2/.htpasswd
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/www/chriss/chezchris.ca/data#/.htpasswd
AuthName MEMBERS
AuthType Basic

<Limit GET POST>
require valid-user
</Limit>


-- in other words repeat the "AuthUserFile" line???


I don't want to have to duplicate my members area into different directories. I want to be able to specify who gets in.

no don't do that ;)

check out how to use AuthGroupFile , you can add existing members to 'groups' and cover a directory by allowing users from a valid group...
