Well if you're new to this then I'd steer clear unless you have to. You can write your own provider that inherits from a built-in one or just from scratch. I did it once and it's no small task but in your case it's probably not too difficult. You'd have to do something similar with the MembershipUser too. There are articles on msdn2.com about the asp.net 2.0 membership provider model and also a fantastic Wrox book on it (wish I'd read it before I started on the task, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management, not sure if it's still available outside of one of their packages though: http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470117575.html.
