This is a known issue that the lockdown feature prevents anonymous users from viewing form pages in publishing  portal.

To resolve this issue, use the Stadm.exe command-line tool to disable the lockdown feature. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Open box, and then click OK.
Type the following lines at the command prompt. Press ENTER after each line.
cd /d %commonprogramfiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Bin
stsadm -o deactivatefeature -url http://ServerName -filename ViewFormPagesLockDown\feature.xml
Type exit to exit the command prompt.
Note After you run this command-line tool against your site, you must toggle the site  Settings advanced permissions to turn off Anonymous access. Then, turn on Anonymous access again. You must do this for the command to take effect on content that exists in the site.

See KB article: Users are unexpectedly prompted to enter their credentials when they access a list in a Office SharePoint Server 2007 site that is based on the Publishing Site template  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927082) for more information.
