Step 1:

Add a new form to your project.

Step 2:

Add a button to the form, along with 2 textboxes (for username and password).

Step 3:

Create a new action for when the button is clicked.

Step 4:

Create the code that will determine whether the username is valid or not (and whether to go to the next form, your main program form).

A simple way would be to use "if".

if ((textbox1.Text == "bob") && (textbox2.Text == "pass"))
{
// show new form and close the login form
}

Step 5:

Refine step 4, adding in try/catch scenarios and whatever else you want to add in.

Also consider that hardcoding solutions like this isn't best practice, but I think it covers the concept rather well. (ie, you don't want to have to add the if code statement for each username/password).

For the record, for future help you'll need to post code showing some effort on your behalf if you want actual code.

Just as a side note, if you're using ASP.NET, there is already an entire authentication control you can simply slap on the page.
If it's windows forms, then TravisP explains it well enough.
