Delphi2 + SQL Server 7.0

Having just upgraded our SQL server to version 7 from 6.5, I have taken the opportunity of providing access to the SQL server using NT logon verification only.  When my Delphi 2 application prompts for logon, it fails as it does not recognise the user as it appears to be looking for SQL authenticated user, even though the user is part of a valid NT group for that database.

Is it possible to use NT verification as part of the application or do I have to kludge it by setting up a new user with SQL authentication.

Regards
