Public SSRS data report

I can do everything but view a data report online:
I am able developed a basic BIDS 2008 SSRS report.  I was able to get BIDS to preview it.  I deployed it and it ran from the IE browser SSRS reports interface.  I can view a report without any data connections using a Public URL.  The problem is when I try to run a report with data from a Public URL.  I appear to get a permissions error going to the sql sever.

----------------------this is error message returned into the report viewer body instead of the SSRS report:
    An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
        Cannot create a connection to data source 'DataSource1'. (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
            For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors

-----------------------I am hoping for a check list of steps to review for setting up a public facing SSRS data report

I think the problem is caused by the properties of the data source used for the report by the report server. So in the 'IE browser SSRS reports interface' not the BIDS part. Check if you are using the option 'Credentials stored securely in the report server' option. And if the user running the report has permissions on the Data Source (that's on the Security part of the Properties).

I really dig the approach.  I put forth some different users and options.  I still get that same error message.  

-------------in addition to report viewer error--This is a message logged in sql server:--
Login failed for user 'IIS APPPOOL\ASP.NET v4.0 Classic'. Reason: Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error. Check for previous errors. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
***both of those messages are write on that report viewer
-----------------

Can you recommend a credential path?  
Does the web.config has any options for ssrs?

The first error message says "or enable remote errors". I suggest you try that and see if you get a more useful error message:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa337165(v=sql.105).aspx

I don't understand why the user 'IIS APPPOOL\ASP.NET v4.0 Classic' is used to get to SQL Server. I suppose you've set up a different user in the data source.

And you could also check these sources for some useful information:
