Integrated Windows Authentication not working as expected over http

Hi. I just setup a website with windows server 2003.

I do not want to enable anonymous access.

I currently have Windows Integrated Authentication selected.

When viewing this website with a browser...

I'd like to login and view the website with a particular user account, say, USERA

However, I am only able to login with my admin account.

- UserA has modify/read/execute permissions on that folder & the files inside it (the website's home folder)
- UserA is included in the local policy setting for network access

Any tips?

not sure if this will help in anyway but ie will only pass authentication automatically to sites that are in the local intranet group (under tools, internet options, security tab).
I know it probably wont be that but that was one thing that stumped me in the past!!  
If that isnt any help what messages are you getting back??

Dave, when I visit the site, it just comes up with a login/password window.

If I type in one of accounts (non-admin) that has access to that web directory, it 'fails' and it just pops up the login/password window again.

Didn't really figure this one out
