Wrong domain when using Digest Authentication

OK, I have an intranet  site whatever.com which is in Domain dogeatdogs.com. I have enabled Digest authentication. The problem is that when users from a WinXp machine put in their username they are required to put dogeatdogs\username because it defaults to whatever.com\username. Is there some way to change it so that the user can just put their username in?

 I am using IIS 5.0 on a windows 2000 machine.

no as it will always try the current username and password
they could use username@dogeatdogs

So, there is no way of saying dogeatdog.com should instead be whatever.com for authintication purposes? Just to save the user from needing to specify that. With Windows vista and 7 this does it automatically. IN that situation there is no need to specify that. Confused?
