I've not actually seen that this can be done with FP, and I've been running
it for quite some time, but perhaps MS snuck it in there as a new feature
and I didn't catch it.

You can, however, use ASP to do exactly this. There is a product (free)
called ASPLogin that authenticates thorugh ODBC. It requires that all of
your pages be .ASP pages and that you have a simple piece of code embedded
at the top of each page. It is very simple, the source code is provided,
and it works...if you can use ASP. With ASP being a free component of IIS
4.0, I recommend it highly.
