Greetings all!

I have been asked to implement authentication (Windows authentication) and authorisation in an existing Windows application (about 15 forms).

1.  How do I verify (Authenticate) the user when the application loads?
2.  How do I link roles to the various forms?
3.  How do I check if the suer has the role (or will "2" take care of this) ?
4.  Is there anything that I have forgotten?

In advance, thanks!!
