    You could use the following in the robots.txt file:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: *

    But you really don't want to do this. What are you trying to do?

    Anyone know how to block just one bot and allow all others? I got a picture bot hitting my sites a couple times a day using several IPs

    Just ip ban them? using php, not very hard to do. Make something like this

    <?php
    $banip = "0.0.0.0";
    $ip = GetHostByName($REMOTE_ADDR);
    if ( $ip == $banip )
    echo "
    <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL=http://www.google.com">
    ";

    ?>

    replace 0.0.0.0 with the ip that you wish to remove :p

    Use this robots.txt file:

    User-agent: your bot name you want to block
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /your private files
