Having problem when using web.xml to provide login system to user.

I'm trying to build a login system into my webapps.
Below is my web.xml and my tomcat-users.xml. I try to login using "myRole" and "myPassword" but it doesn't work. It keeps showing me the pop-up box until it fails to login and gives me HTTP error 401.
I'm using Tomcat 4.1.29.

Could somebody please advice?

Thanks
