Unable to get past HTTP401 in CRM4

I can not seem to get past the following Access error message trying to install custom applications and/or running CRM Reports (custom or canned).  My config consists of
-an SBS2003 server running AD & Exchange.  
-My SQL2005 server is also a W2k03 server running SQL2005 w/SP2, Reporting Services, .NET1.1 & .NET2.0, and Dynamics/GP10.
-My Web Server is also a W2k03 running CRM4.0, .NET1.1 & .NET2.0.   For the most part, the installation is vanilla (except for a CRM3 to CRM4 upgrade in place, occurring a while back)

I have checked that NETWORK Service is in the Identity of the CRM App Pool & the Reporting Services App Pool, and that the App Pools have been assigned to their respective WebSites.  

Any insight would be very much appreciated.

May I know have you installed SRS Connector (SRS - Sql reporting services) n the SQL Server? If not you can download and install it in your SQL Server.

SRS connector is responsible for proxy of the request from CRM to the Reporting Services and ensures that double hop kerberos authentication isn't a problem.

I've sometimes seen this when the SQL Server and CRM Server are on different computers. A solution that may work is to add a registry key on the CRM server:

- Navigate to HKEY_LM\Software\Microsoft\MSCRM. Right-click on MSCRM and then click on NEW and choose DWORD.
- Type NTLMForSQLRSServer and enter a value of 1.

Thank you for your suggestions.
Aftab, I do not believe SRS Connector is installed on either server.  If installed, should it be on the database/SRS server?  Is the software on the CRM4 CD?  I did not perform the original installation.  Hence, I am unaware if it is there.
Feridun, does this apply to CRM4, as well?  My understanding is that cross server communication requires Kerberos authentication, not NTLM.  Is that incorrect?

Thank you again for your continued suggestions and guidance.

You could find SRS Data connector in CRM Server 4.0 CD it self
it would be under the directory  Server\i386\SrsDataConnector .
You should install in the server where you happen to install Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.

Hope this helps

It turned out that the SRS Connector was installed already.  But, in the hunt today, I found that the ASPNET account & SQLPrivUser & PrivReporting Groups did not have the correct access privileges.  Updating them resolved the issue.
Thank you for all of the guidance, though.  It was all good information.
