Automatic Proxy Authentication IE WINXP

Hi

I currently have a proxy (boarder) authentication prompt me for a username and password every time I access the internet via Internet Explorer V6 running on Windows XP professional.

Is it possible to place the username and password somewhere in WINXP so it automatically remembers the information and does not display a prompt for this information?

Cheers mate
