Go to any document library  settings and columns page, and select general
settings, and turned on the document approval  checkbox, it will enable
users to post a document on the library and only the administrator of
that site can approve the document, and after the approval the document
is viewable to all the viewers. The time till the document is not
approved it will not be shown to any user on the document library page.

I tried the same. But it is not working that is it is allwoing the user to view
the document before administrator can approve it.

Only Administrators can approve documents? I read that in WSS sites
users need Manage Lists rights to approve documents, but I have a doc
library in SPS Portal 2003. Do I really need to make my approvers

Also, if I also have versioning turned on for that document library,
when a new version is uploaded does the entire document chain go into
pending status or can I still see the prior approved version?
