I am using the COM AxWebBrowser in a VS 2003 (1.1) project to access a password protected area of a website.  I need to pass a predefined auth so as not to burden the EU with auth'ing when they have already done so to use the app.  How do I pass that as part of the web request/flags/options?

One way is this.. That is how i login to yahoo.
Prerequisite is that you are not logged in already to yahoo.

To test.. Open in browser mail.yahoo.com
and you if you are already logged in, then sign out..

Then run the code which i have placed in the sample by changing your username and password string and you will automatically login to the mail of yahoo page
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        AxWebBrowser1.Navigate2("mail.yahoo.com")
    End Sub
    Dim bool As Boolean
    Private Sub AxWebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AxSHDocVw.DWebBrowserEvents2_DocumentCompleteEvent) Handles AxWebBrowser1.DocumentComplete
        If Not bool Then
            bool = True
            CType(CType(AxWebBrowser1.Document, mshtml.HTMLDocument).getElementById("username"), mshtml.HTMLInputElement).value = "yourusername"
            CType(CType(AxWebBrowser1.Document, mshtml.HTMLDocument).getElementById("passwd"), mshtml.HTMLInputElement).value = "yourpassword"
            CType(CType(AxWebBrowser1.Document, mshtml.HTMLDocument).getElementById("login_form"), mshtml.HTMLFormElement).submit()
        End If
    End Sub

armoghan, thanks for your reply.  No, I'm not talking about forms-based auth, but the permissions based auth (i.e., the IE-based "popup" that occurs when the page is accessed).  Since I know that it is permissions-protected, it seems to me I can initiate a request with the auth in the post...
