Hallo Andre!

I did this test:
<Location /> AuthName "Server" [..]</Location>
<Location /public> AuthName "Public"  [..]</Location>

The funny thing about that: When trying to access I'm getting ask for the "Public" realm first 
and after supplying a correct user/passwd I'm getting asked for the 
"Server" realm. So it's anyhow the opposite of "inherited".

This one doen't help. And sorry, I forgot to mention: I'm using Apache 1.3.
