IIS 6 asking for username/password from LAN users

I am making a Intranet site and i need it to allow access to all the users that already authenticated on their local PC. so i clicked on Directory Security > Edit > and turned off anonymous off and checked integrate windows authentication.
however when i browse to the site now it is asking for my user/pass. its as if my credentials are not passed to the IIS.
any idea?

Thank you,

integrate windows authentication is part of Windows only, and this is the reason it only works with IE. if you want to use it with Firefox & IE then you need to use Basic Authentication Method, but in that case every user needs to enter their login info Manually.
