IIS 6.0 prompting for Windows Authentication when accessing CITRIX Web Interface 5.1

Hello all,

I have a Windows 2003 Server /SP2 with CITRIX Web Interface 5.1 installed (I have PS on another server as well).  The server is part of a domain.  When I try to access the site, I keep getting prompted for a username and password by Windows Authentication.  I am trying to allow any user access to the web interface page and then they enter credentials to access published applications.  

If I cancel the WinAuth, I get 401.3 ACL error.  The issue is that I cannot have my users authenticating 3 times to get published applications.

For Troubleshooting, I have done the following:
1. Added IUSR (NTFS permissions) to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot - Full control
2. Removed Windows Authentication from the entire website in IIS Manager
--*Doing this gets rid of the WinAuth, but it goes straight to the 401.3 error

I have run the IIS troubleshooting application from Microsoft, no help
I have changed permissions more times than I can count.
I have changed my browser settings on my laptop because I read that it can cause problems like this by the way it is configured.

On the flip side, if I enter an ID and PW at the WinAuth, I immediately get to the Web Interface Logon page.  I enter my credentials there as well and I get to my published apps.  I click my published app and I have to authenticate again, and it comes up.  

This is the behavior I want except for the WinAuth when you first hit the site.  I have a certificate for the site as well.  If you need any more information about the setup, I will be happy to share what I can.

I am at the end of my rope.
