Hello everybody,

I have 2008 server with SharePoint 3.0.   my upper management does not like that they login to the site then when they click on internal website they need to use they user name and password. then when they lick to  open a documents it ask again for user name and password.

Is there a way to make it a single login?  if yes how and whats the down side with having it as a single login.
