I want to create a robot.txt file that will do the following.

Disallow certain pages to ALL Spiders and then disallow some other pages to only one of the spiders. i.e.

moreinfo.htm not allowed for any spiders

moreinfo-alt.htm not allowed for Excite.

Also in the User-agent: what excatly am I putting there? Would it be scooter or Scooter/2.0 G.R.A.B. V1.1.0?

A full robots.txt spec is at webcrawler. Half of it is Greek to me but there are examples in section 4 that are pretty simple.

Also a syntax checker is at robots syntax
and this is very handy.
