Sharepoint prompts for a username and password from ANY computer including the server.

This is a Windows 2003 SBE server running sharepoint.   Even from the server, sharepoint works, but you have to type your username and password every time.   It will not remember the password, and it does not matter which computer you connect from, or even the server it self.   THe site works fine, now, but had some problems, and had to reinstall sharepoint on the server.  

Any thoughts?

When computer asked for id and password there is an option to save password make it chek, but if your computers restarted to password is gone.

or

I think that you didn't install active directory or your computer users are not loged into DC or you permissions are not properly assigned.

It usually happend when computers are on workgroup environment.

install active directory -> join all computers into AD -> assign permissions on sharepoint to required users.

hope it will help you,

This is windows 2003 Small Business Edition.   It is already running AD, and again, this is also happening on the server.

This is only happend when clients are not logon to domain or they are not member of domain.

may be all of your users are connected to AD or you create your domain from scratch.

send me details of your network

While I appreciate the help, you are way off here.   Let me state this a little more clearly.  

Sitting at the SERVER (Which is, of course, the PDC) SIGNED IN AS THE ADMINISTRATOR, OR ANY OTHER ACCOUNT, opening the sharepoint site (The site that is hosted on the server I am sitting in front of and loged into) promots for a username.  Once authenticated, it lets me in, and the site works perfectly.  

This is NOT an AD issue.

I would check IIS.  Makes sure the site is using the default header for SBS http://companyweb  I would also check the security of the site to ensure that Integrated Windows authentication is enabled.
