So far, so good.

The above two directives are wrong.  You need to specify the absolute
file pathname to those respective files.  You can put those files any
place you like.  However, it is strongly recommended that you do *not*
put them under any DocumentRoot.

	AuthDBMUserFile "d:/apache group/apache2/userpass"
	AuthDBMGroupFile "d:/apache group/apache2/grouppass"

:        AuthDBMAuthoritative on
:        Require user george
:        Order deny,allow
:        Deny from all
:        #Allow from all
:        Allow from
: </Location>

The rest looks good.

: I have created a directory entry -- d:\apache group\apache2\htdocs\server-status.

You don't need to create the directory.  In fact, delete it.

: In that directory I have created a blank .htaccess file.

You don't need to do that either, since you are specifying the configs
directly in httpd.conf.

: what I am getting is the user name/password prompt.  Once I type in
: the user name and password, the browser keeps asking me for the user
: name/password over and over.

Because Apache failed to find your username/password combination in the
user file you incorrectly specified above.

: I have tried pointing the user data to PASS and full path 
: d:/apache~1/apache/conf/pass

Again, you can put it any where you want.  Make sure that the path is
correct.  Here you specified ".../apache/..." while above you specified
".../apache2/..."  Also, don't include AuthDBMGroupFile unless you intend
to use that feature.
