It sounds like your SQL Server is only setup to allow Windows logins (Trusted Connection = Windows Login).

Look up "Mixed Mode security" in BOL and you'll see how to change it to accept SQL Server logins too.

If you're going to set-up Mixed Mode security then you should create a new SQL Server account to use with your ASP pages that has just the privileges your application needs. Its just a massive security risk to run your application as the 'sa' account - even more so if there's no password on that account (look up "passwords, adding" in BOL).
