ASPNETDB users not seen from Site Collection in Sharepoint WSS 3

Hello experts,

I'm using WSS 3.0 and trying to configure Forms Based authentication using ASPNETSQLMembership provider.  I have made changes to the web.config file in my application root and in the central admin root.  I have added users to my aspnetdb. I am able to browse those users in my database with the peoplepicker in my Central Admin site and I can resolve those users when I add them as site collection administrators.

My problem:  I cannot resolve users from my aspnetdb database from the people picker inside my site collection.  If I add a user from Central admin as a site collection admin, then I can login with that user.  If I try to add add'l users from the Site Collection settings pages, it does not see the users in my aspnetdb (only AD users).

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Are you prefixing the users with the DOMAIN\user?

If so it's not necessary as FBA users aren't necessarily domain users.

Hey Robbie thanks for the input.
I'm not prefixing users with Domain.  I'm still working on this.

You will need to either develop a page by which to add users:

See the users and role creation section.

The other option is to add them directly to the DB.

You could always let them register themselves using this web part:
