Enforce SQL Login prompt for ms access database with linked tables

I have developed a database with an ms access 2003 front end and SQL 2005 tables.  The users will sometimes be required to access the database on a shared pc.  However this pc uses a generic network account and i do not want the user to log it off and log in as themselves each time they need to access the system.  The database is set up using Windows authentication and i am unable to change this to mixed mode (unsure why!)

Is there any way i can set up the database so that it prompts the user to login using their windows login.  Therefore not letting random users on the shared pc access confidential data

Windows authentication will always use the logged in user on the client.  So you cannot do this the way you're wanting to.  When you say you can't change to mixed mode, how do you mean?

When i open the connection properties of the database the values are all greyed out and cannot be modified.  I tried creating a new db from scratch but it just defaulted to Windows Authentication.  Just learning all this so am probably missing something simple.

I just worked around this issue from the Access db side of things
