I have an ASP.NET (3.5) application that uses Windows Authentication.  Now I want to set authoritzation based on ASP.Net roles.  I used the ASP.NET Configuration tool to create the roles and I know how to specify that a role has authority to a page.  What I don't know how to do is add Active Directory users to the roles.  Is there a way to do this?  Can it be done using the ASP.Net Configuration tool?

Doubt it, open up "Active Directory Users and Groups", on the domain controller, find a group you are interested in, and add users there.

Then in web.config, hopefully you have something like this

<authorization>
      <allow roles="MYDOMAIN\Some_Group_Name"/>
      <deny users="*"/>
</authorization>

I agree with raterus. You're mixing AD authentication with forms authentication. Best thing to do is use groups in AD which act the same as roles with forms authentication.
