If I was going the cgi route, the cgi would just check the referrer, and give out the file based on that (much easier) but i was hoping that there would be an easier (apache) method, as the site's not
mine, and I would have to write the cgi, as the person involved er......couldn't.

hang on - is there a shtml (parsed html)option?
if env_referer = http://ripped/off/site
print "f**k off"
(my parsed html's not up to par)
