Why was a custom xml provider chosen over the one that comes with .NET? I need to utilize multiple roles and profiles. I also need a challenge question as a registration requirement. 
I found a post stating that active directory could be used by changing the provider. If I wanted to to that in favor of the .NET provider, and I changed login.aspx would that mess anything up? maybe the role for the admin? Also, the roles extension seems to be only for the previous versions. It seemed that maybe it was integrated into 1.2.2, if so, how do you activate it?
