I am using MS IIS as a web server which relies on Windows NT for all user security. The logon ID and password is used to connect to our web server.
I want to control the pages display according to the logon user ID. e.g. if user A logon successfully, a page will be shown, and another page will be shown for user B.

How can I get the logon user ID from Windows NT?

There is a server-side include variable that is included with part of Active Server Pages called:
LOGON_USER: This is defined as Windows NT account details for the user.

So this should have the information you are looking for and with this you can direct them to the correct page.

This is my comment:

Sorry, this answer is vague for me.  

I have searched the Help file in Windows NT, however, it niether mention the Active Server Page ( ASP ?) nor the LOGON_USER variable.

What do I need to add in the HTML codes to refer the LOGON_USER variable from Windows NT ?
