Directory Securiy: UNCPassword and AuthFlags

    I am using the Altiris system management web service on IIS6.0. The
    Directory Security is fairly straightforward: all the virtual directories
    have Windows Integrated authentication, and some of them allow Anonymous.
    I need to change the authentication method to be Digest, so it can work
    across firewalls. When I remove WIA and add Digest, I am prompted by
    UNCPassword and AuthFlags inherited properties. My problem is that (it
    seems) if I say Yes, the wrong Anonymous settings are applied. If I say No,
    the changes I wanted to make are not applied. I have searched on AuthFlags
    and UNCPassword and I am none the wiser.
    What is the correct technique for adding or removing one authentication,
    without changing what is Anonymous or not?
    I want to leave the permissions in as much of a default state as possible.
    For example, if one virtual directory is inheriting security from another,
    I'd like to leave it inheriting even if I change the method used.
    Thanks,
    Anthony
