I don't understand your configuration.  Normally, web apps do not see an SQL Server login screen.   Can you please explain, when/where do you get the login screen.  Is it an SQL Server login screen?  Is this a static page or is it ASP?

i created the screen to allow people to log in either using windows auth, or to use sql server.  so when they choose windows auth, i need to use the userid and pwd that they are currently logged onto their box with.

That's not how windows auth works.  Windows auth assumes the user is already authenticated by windows and simply passes a token representing that windows account to the backend database.  The database "trusts" that token and grants any permissions that are assigned to it.  Neither a userid, nor a password is actually passed.  

When ASP is involved, it's more complicated because the database connection originates from the IIS account, not from the client account where the user has logged in.  To make this seamless, IIS must be configured to impersonate the windows client so that it passes the client token rather than it's own.

Needless to say, the setup takes planning and effort.  I encourage you to check out this resource which gives a thourough explanation:

I have no other suggestions here, except, that it appears IIS is attempting to use anyonymous despite your claim that it is suppressed (unchecked).

i think it is because i have the sql server on one machine and IIS on the other machine.  therefore it is doing a two-hop and not authenticating.  do you have any experience with sql on one machine and IIS on another?
