Ummmm, I'm not sure I understand entirely.  You want the Main.Login
page to be created with a password already in place?  No problem:

    if (!PageExists('Main.Login')) {
       $page['text'] = '[[authform]]';
       $page['passwdedit'] = crypt('editpass');

Or, if you just want the page to be completely locked against editing
except by the admin password,  use $page['passwdedit'] = '*'; instead.

You can also disable editing of Main.Login entirely by just doing
something like:

   if ($pagename=='Main.Login') $action='browse';
