How to Specify Eclipse Proxy Authentication Credentials?

I’m using the latest version of Eclipse Galileo and I have to access the web from behind a proxy. I see where I can set the internet settings to manual and specify a proxy but there’s no way to specify my authentication credentials that I can see and it doesn’t prompt me for them either.
