You can enable "BASIC" authentication on Proxy server.
You can also try to configure SOCKS proxy on MS Proxy & in DNet client. MS
Proxy 2.0 seem to support it.
You will need you proxy administrator assistance to do this.

Quote from MS:
What client platforms does Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0 support?
Web Proxy - Any client operating system that supports HTTP (for example,
Windows, Mac, UNIX).

WinSock Proxy - Any client operating system that supports Winsock 1.1 or
above (Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95, Windows NT Workstation).

SOCKS Proxy - Any application on any platform that is "SOCKS-compliant" will
support SOCKS v4.3a or earlier. (Windows, Macintosh, UNIX).

It won't work without MS Ppoxy, AFAIK, but you can disable MS Proxy client
in control panel. Not sure if this require reboot, though.

If you've done all of this, configuring MS Proxy/SOCKS should be piece of
cake ;-)
