    Once you change the web.config  file to use Windows Integrated security, users will have to log in using a valid Windows account on the network. Changing the web.config  file disables the forms authentication.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>Check this article from ScottGu: <o:p></o:p>

    To enable Windows Authentication within an ASP.NET Application, you should make sure that you have “Integrated Windows Authentication” (formerly called NTLM authentication) enabled within IIS for the application you are building. 
    You should then add a web.config file to the root directory of your ASP.NET application that contains an <authentication> section which sets the mode to “Windows”.

    The below web.config file demonstrates how to configure both steps described above:



            <authentication mode="Windows" />

                 <deny users="?"/>

    Note that the <deny users=”?”/> directive within the <authorization> section above is what tells ASP.NET to deny access to the application to all “anonymous” users to the site (the “?” character means anonymous user).  This forces Windows to authenticate the user, and ensures that the username is always available from code on the server.

    Yes, you need to add these user to roles, because it defines the rigthts to particular users
