When you open a a document in Office 2007 stored in Sharepoint, the office programs use the OS WebDav component to communicate to the Sharepoint server. However to successfully pass your current Windows authentication through to the server, it is very sensitive to what proxy and zone settings you have setup in IE for the user. The best way to to mandate these IE settings via group policy or your favourite management tool for your users.
Until a SP1 of Vista is available (If it is fixed), your workaround is to specify a proxy settings in IE and select "bypass proxy server for local addresses".
If you use IE and choose to configure your client using automatic configuration script, instead of checking the "Automatically detect settings", you may need to apply this hotfix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941853/.
Updated: 3/1/2008, Well with vista SP1 RC, it is no longer prompting me.

Its all good except when I tried it with TFS 2008 Beta 2, you seem to have some restrictions in your selection of path. It only works correctly when your path is a single level deep. Ie, http://wssserver/TFSSites, if you try to point it to http://wssserver/development/TFSSites, some functionalities works, but a lot of things don't.
Sent a feedback to MS and apparently is by design. So from my tests, it seems that you can have WSS on a corporate farm, but as long as that path is onlye 1 level deep.

Well as it turns out the application I was testing had a dependency on MSDE and I just had to install the patch to MSDE http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913100 for x64 machines only.

Vista reported I have a 4.7 Windows Experience Index. So far the laptop is working ok under Vista, some features such as automatic screen brightness and keyboard illumination doesn't work. One complaint is that when booted into Vista, the hardware makes a high pitch noise.

An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException was thrown. Additional exception information:
Action 184.108.40.206 of Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPConfigurationDatabaseSequence2 failed.Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPUpgradeException:
Action 220.127.116.11 of Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade.SPConfigurationDatabaseSequence2 failed. --->
The id 0a54b6fc-79ad-4412-b51d-3091dd622976 is in
use. An Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPServer named "sql" is using the same id as the new object named "sql" of type Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPServer. Every object must contain a unique id. Either update the new object's id or delete the existing object and try again.
The solution that worked for me is to empty out the "Dependencies" and "Objects" table in the WSS Config database and run the wizard again.
