C# VS 2008

I am building a web based application and it needs to have security tied to it. In the past I created a local group on the server and added the appropriate users to the group. With the web config file I granted appropriate access based on whether your username was part of the group or not.
I have been made aware that the best way to do this is with Forms authentication. I have always done this concept using integrated windows authentication, but I have been told that is not the correct and best way to do this.
Could I have some input on this thought and perhaps an example on how to implement the concept using a form based authentication as opposed to using the windows authentication concept.
