Server 2003 Authentication issues

I setup a new website on my server. I am using plesk with server 2003. I installed mssql 2008 and put up a database. I copied the contents of my website over and the page loads and logs into the site. The problem is it keeps popping up and asking me for the user name and password. It pops up like a windows password prompt. I have looked through everything I know to do.

How do I get this working? The page won't load properly because of this.

Does it prompt you when you try to hit it from another computer as well, or only when you load the browser directly from the server?  If it only happens from the server then it may be caused by a built in security mechanism.  I wrote an article about it here:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Microsoft_IIS/Fix-401-1-Error-when-browsing-a-website-using-integrated-authentication-directly-from-the-server.html

If it happens from anywhere, then you might need to add it as a trusted site in your browser.  Or you could actually have a permissions issue which I would recommend using Filemon to troubleshoot:

Did you install the Plesk Power pack? M$SQL support is enabled in Power Pack, but not in the default Plesk license key. Once installed, you can configure the Database Server by surfing to Plesk > Server > Databases page.

You can also use a machine account for the database instead of a user account. Make sure you set the machine account up with the appropriate access to the database instance.

I would check in IIS.  Inside the web site properties, under the Directory Security tab, edit the Authentication and Access Control.  Verify that enable anonymous access is checked.

Also, on the folder that actually holds the web site files, you should check the NTFS security permissions to see if the anonymous IUSR has access to those files.
