SharePoint site permissions challenge with images, no challenge without?

When I input the https URL for the homepage of my MOSS 2007 site, I'm challenged for username/password credentials. I put in my info and I'm able to access all pages without being prompted again for credentials except for one.

The page in question uses a standard, site definition default.aspx and sp template, and contains a single web part, a document library.
Once I'm logged into the moss site at the home page, no other page prompts me for username/password.
However, when I turn images off, there's no prompt for username/password on this specific page.
Also, when I click the title of the document library and arrive at the AllItems.aspx page, there is no prompt, with or without images.
Also, if at the pemissions prompt I click CANCEL and do not re-input my username/password, I see no images missing, nor any loss of functionality.
I have checked the page in SP Designer and find no links to images outside of the site (which caused me grief some time ago as the https gave 'mixed mode' warnings.)
Any advice?

Much thanks.

It sounds like you need to be given permission to the folder where these images are stored.

Thanks Taurance.
As far as I can see, the permissions are set properly. I might be missing something, but I don't know what or where.
I have just noticed somewhere else it's not working, however. When I click on a Doc LIb's Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify Navigation, I'm running into something where I'm prompted for account login/password. Here, however, if I don't supply credentials, I get missing images.

Where are the images located.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Just tracked it down using Xenu. I'm getting errors for

https://website/subsite/_layouts/images/arrupi.gif
https://website/subsite/_layouts/images/arrdowni.gif
https://website/subsite/_layouts/images/link.gif
https://website/subsite/_layouts/images/delitem.gif
https://website/subsite/_layouts/images/nfolder.gif

Checked permissions and I see

Administrators
CREATOR OWNER
Power Users
SYSTEM
TERMINAL SERVER USER
Users (SERVERNAME\Users
WSS_ADMIN_WPG
WSS_WPG

All seem to have at least Read Permission to see the folder contents.

Try and see if having write or I think like execute rights to this folder to verify you have acces...  It happened that we did not have the proper rights on one of our servers and we were prompted just like you specifically on images.

Sorry, the above files are from a separate problem I'm having with some of the admin pages. Ran Xenu on my page and got

https://site/subsite/_layouts/images/blank.gif
error code: 401 (auth required), linked from page(s):
      https://site/subsite/default.aspx
      https://site/subsite/_layouts/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx

I took a look at the permissions and everything looks good. Is there a certain user Sharepoint uses? WSS_WPG?

This was resolved so long ago I honestly can't remember what we did to resolve. Thanks for your guidance Taurance.
