It was a completely fresh install of Koha and all its pre-requisites on Windows
XP SP2; followed the directions in the Koha for Windows install guide. 
Everything seemed to install OK with the end result being that I could access
both the OPAC and the Intranet but on the Intranet I have to re-authenticate
every time I try to access a new screen.  Also after entering a patron and
assigning them a username/password with superlibrarian privileges I'm unable to
to login with those credentials to the Intranet.  From your initial description
it sounds like the same/similar problem.  Just don't know how to try and fix it?
Any thoughts/ideas would be appreciated.
