Trouble with generic error page when application contains secure and non-secure pages.

Hi.
I have an application which requires a secure channel for just certain pages.  I was able to do this selectively in IIS with no problem, except that the (non-secure) custom error page I defined in my web.config no longer works.    It wants me to authenticate (even though these pages are set to allow anonymous access), after which I'll get  an HTTP 401.2 error:
 "You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied because your Web browser is sending a WWW-Authenticate header field that the Web server is not configured to accept."

Is there a way to have non-secure and secure pages within the same app, while using custom error pages?
