Thanks, Julian, but this applies to allowing XP with service pack 2 to do 
basic authentication.

Excerpt from the link you provided:
This behavior occurs if the following conditions are true:
* The server is configured to use Basic authentication.

The default "XP service pack 2" authentication is digest, which is supported 
by the server. Basic authentication is disabled for security reasons.

XP with service pack 2 correctly authenticates with digest authentication on 
one computer, but fails on another computer with apparently the same mini 
redirect version.

Here is the HTTP trace. One can clearly see from the trace that XP that this 
particular XP computer totally ignores the authentication.
