I am on a lan that has an intranet.  When users initially log into the network, If they have access right I do not want them to get prompted for thier password when browsing the intranet.

dtolo,

Not exactly sure what kind of setup you have got.

Now if they open IE , does it ask for a password or only if they open specific websites.

Is that password whatever they give to browse synchronized with their network password.

what type of machines are these and is IE version 6 ?

The intranet is sharepoint and there log-in to the intranet is the same as thier network log-in.  It is IE6.

On your server, open Administrative Tools, Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager (formerly known as Internet Services Manager in Windows 2000)
Open your server and the web sites (click the + to open them)
Right-click on the web site (such as Default Web Site). Click Properties.
Click on the Directory Security tab.
Click the top Edit button in the "Authentication and access control" section (the section is labelled "Anonymous Access and authentication control" in Windows 2000)
Make sure the only box checked is "Integrated Windows Authentication"
Click OK a couple times to close the windows.

Having the "Integrated Windows Authentication" box checked will let users log in using their current login, as you are asking for. Not having any other box checked means that they can only use Windows Authentication (no anonymous access, etc.)

This will likely only work with Internet Explorer 4.01SP1 or higher as the web browser, and not with any non-microsoft IE browsers.
I also assume that the IIS server is in the Active Directory domain that your users are logging in to, so that it has access to those user accounts for authentication. A DMZ IIS could require further configuration.

You should also check the NTFS permissions on the web server directory "such as C:\Inetpub\wwwroot" to ensure that your domain users have at least Read & Execute permissions
