ASP.NET - Display Images on Forms-Based Authentication Site

I'm building a new site using ASP.NET / VB.NET and am taking advantage of the form-based authentication that is built in.  Well, the login works fine, but I am unable to include stylesheets or images on the login page.  They apparently are blocked because the user is not authenticated.  Is there a way to "unblock" css and image files and still use forms-based authentication, or am I going to have to go with plain text for my login page?

Here's my web.config.  I did it the same way that they suggested in Wrox's "Beginning ASP.NET 1.1 with VB.NET 2003":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<configuration>
    <appSettings>
        <add key="connString" value="Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=DSNAME;Initial Catalog=DATABASE;User Id=USER;Password=PASS;" />
    </appSettings>
    <system.web>
        <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".pesvaliduser" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="20" />
        </authentication>
        <authorization>
            <deny users="?" />
        </authorization>
    </system.web>
</configuration>
