I am trying to just gather the domain users login name when they access our Intranet on a simple little "Web User Control"

I have tried  
       lblUserName.Text = Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")
And nothing happens.  I have tried using the SYSTEM.ENVIRNONMENT.USERNAME and that only gives me the NETWORK SERVICE which is to be expected.  This has GOT to be a simple deal.

Did you try the following:
lblLabel.Text = Environment.UserName
or
lblLabel.Text = User.Identity.Name;

How is your IIS configured ?
What you can do it, enable the Windows authentication from the Web.config file and look at the "AUTH_USER" server variable. May be this will help you.

since you have windows authentication enabled, make sure you have your web.config set to force authentication;

<authentication mode="Windows" />
      <authorization>
        <deny users="?" />
      </authorization>
