I want to assign users to a role when they register on my site
automatically so that I can specify what they do and dont
see on the menu that uses the web.sitemap file. Can I do this so that
I don't have to do it manually with the ASP.NET configuration tool ?
If not, what is another way I can do this while using a sitemapdatasource
with the web.sitemap file.
(Anonymous users and registered users must see different menus)

proper way http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178428.aspx

one other way - on page loads check if the user is logged in eg forms authentication and display correct sitemap
setup multiple sitemaps:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178426.aspx

then check if the user is authenticated on page load

if (HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)
{
        //check if it is forms auth
         if (HttpContext.Current.User.Identity is FormsIdentity)
         {
                 // set the relevant SiteMapProvider property to Company1SiteMap as the user is logged in
         }
        else
        {
                 // set the relevant SiteMapProvider property to Company2SiteMap.
        }
}
else
{
        //set the relevant SiteMapProvider property to Company2SiteMap.
}
