I have a site that *has* to use basic authentication because of the
proxy server the clients are behind. Anyhow, whenever a sub site is
created the authentication is changed to use Windows Authentication &
Basic. Any idea how to stop this?

This is somewhat by design. The only thing you can really do is to go into front page server extensions and tell the site what authenication to use. Microsoft has set the default to be Windows Authenication and Basic. There may be some registry code you could change but I would not recommend it.

Really? That seems a little odd because *EVERYONE* using a MS Proxy server would be hooped as it does not support IWA ... any documentation on that? I can't seem to find any ...

Hello? Anyone? :) This is becoming a real pain. Everytime someone creates a new sub site I have to log in to the server and drop IWA!

Actually, this has not solved the problem. It is no different that just disabling IWA from the IIS MMC. Could we keep this open? Anyone have any other ideas??!?!?
