By users I mean website users, so called FE (frontend) users, not so 
called BE (backend) editors. Again this is very basics. I recommend you 
to read the documentation page: http://typo3.org/documentation/  and of 
course the Getting Started manual 
there "1.5 Password protected pages" could be helpful to you.
One hint for the future: take a good look at the documentation if you 
are really interested in TYPO3. After you get the basic ideas, there are 
many helpful resources still for the remaining questions, for example 
the mailinglist.
