I have an asp site that i'm converting to .NET and am trying to wrap my head around forms authentication, memberships, and roles. In this site, I have a LOGINS table that contains all of the user info for my site. Obviously, I'd like to keep this table in tact and use it for memberships. I know there's a script that can be run that creates all of the tables needed, and then in web.config there's some configuration settings that are done, then it works. How can I configure it to use my LOGINS table? I found http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6tc47t75.aspx but it seems like a lot of code to do what I want, is this my only option?
