Allow anonymous access to a particular folder in a ASP.NET application

I have a ASP.NET web application that makes use of Windows Authentication.  However, I have a particular folder that I need for anyone to be able to call ( anonymous )  The application is running on Windows 2008 Server.  I have Set the authentication  of the folder were the web service resides to anonymous, yet I still get prompted for my windows credentials.  If I hit cancel ( not providing anything ) the web service still works as expected.  I need for a linux system to be able to access the web service.

And if you don't want to create separate web.config, another option would be to set the "location" tag for your anonymous folder. This should help: http://weblogs.asp.net/gurusarkar/archive/2008/09/29/setting-authorization-rules-for-a-particular-page-or-folder-in-web-config.aspx

Try adding a separate web.config inside your anonymous folder and add the below:
<configuration>
   <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <allow users="*"/> //Allow everyone
      </authorization>
   </system.web>
</configuration>
