I have created an anonymous access SharePoint 2007 site however some users are able to view some of the lists, libraries and subsites that were created but not all of them.  I set the 'anonymous' option to the entire site as opposed to just lists and libraries (so they should have the ability to view all types of data).  Users are able to view some of the list data via a webpart from my homepage but when they click on the hyperlinked title they get a permissions error on the page.  I also have a navigation bar at the top that doesn't show the tabs to any of the lists, libraries and subites that the users don't have access towards which is strange considering its an anonymous site.  Any ideas as to why this is the case?

Could it be that the libraries that give the access issues are not inheriting permissions from the top level? Therefore the additional permisssions that you set to give anonymous users access didn't populate down to the library in question.

It is a permission issue.
The lists/libraries which works well, go to their settings > Permissions.
The list/library that don't work go to it's settings > permission.
Compare the difference.
Should suffice, if not post the screen shot of 2.
