I know it is about protecting misc folders, but what if I dont have one at all?
Am I missing something?

Is this a must?

I also read something about cloaking it?

Can someone please show a file? Made the best way?

Thanks,
Leif-Harald

Also we have now a brand new shiny forum dedicated to robots.txt, just take a stroll and you will find lots of introductory threads.
As to cloaking your robots.txt, here's the discussion:
