I was wondering if there is an easy way inside of Visual Studio 2010 to isolate menu items so that each user Role sees only the menu items that I need them to see after they've logged in? For those menu items to be hidden to anonymous users?

I appreciate the link but I don't see any information on how to control which menu items users see.

Part 3 talks about how to alter what menus are shown based on users role membership

The first method seems like it would be simpler, not necessarily the most effecient way. What would the difference be if I am using the menu that comes built into the web application template versus the defining of a sitemap?

What changes would I make below before adding this to web.config if I am applying this to my existing menu?

<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0" >
  <siteMapNode url="~/Default.aspx" title="Home">
     <siteMapNode url="~/About.aspx" title="About" />
     <siteMapNode url="~/Admin/Default.aspx" title="Admins" />
     <siteMapNode url="~/Tester/Default.aspx" title="Tester" />
     <siteMapNode url="~/AuthUsers/Default.aspx" title="Auth Users Only" />

     <!-- For links to outside resources, need to explicitly define what
          roles should be shown this section -->
     <siteMapNode url="http://www.scottonwriting.net/sowBlog/" title="My Blog"
                  roles="*" />
  </siteMapNode>
</siteMap>
