Why not just authenticate them against windows?

System.DirectoryServices:

Issue: you'll need to either change the ASP.NET process identity to run as a user who has the privileges to look at the Active Directory/NT Domain or grant the ASP.NET account access to do it.

Oh yea - Greg's right! Just set the ACLs on the files to whichever Windows groups you want to access them - then IIS/Windows does the rest. The users, if logged onto the domain already, don't even have to enter their username/password again.
