Can someone confirm that is true? I thought the best it could do was to
still prompt the user for their password - whereas "pure" NTLM (NT
LanManager???) authentication does it without user interaction...

Also, don't forget that NTLM-based authentication cannot be proxied - you
can use it to authenticate with the proxy - but you can't use it to go
through a proxy to another NTLM authentication Web server. This affects
all proxy servers - including M$'s.
