How to enable SharePoint 2010 site as a Windows and Forms authentication

How to enable SharePoint 2010 site as a Internet Application with out changing window authentication.
Here we are expecting 2 type of authentications for single sharepoint application.

Claims based authentication provides us with a way of dealing with multiple sorts of authentication in one site.
So we have to create our web application as a “Claims based authentication”.

In SharePoint 2007 versions we used to create a new site for each authentication method (Windows, Forms), but in SP2010 no need to create 2 diff sites.
We can use both at the same time mean using single site. You can give single URL to your users, based on their mode the have to select in the drop down while accessing the SP2010 site. In the drop down it will show: Windows (Active Directory) of Forms (External) based authentication.

Sharepoint 2010 Authentication

Claims-based authentication: which is built on Windows Identity Foundation (WIF).

Claims-based authentication is built on WIF, which is a set of .NET Framework classes that are used to implement claims-based identity. Claims-based authentication relies on standards such as WS-Federation, WS-Trust, and protocols such as SAML.

If you select claims-based authentication, SharePoint Server 2010 automatically changes all user accounts to claims identities, resulting in a claims token for each user. The claims token contains the claims pertaining to the user. Windows accounts are converted into Windows claims. Forms-based membership users are transformed into forms-based authentication claims. Claims that are included in SAML-based tokens can be used by SharePoint Server 2010. Additionally, SharePoint developers and administrators can augment user tokens with additional claims. For example, user Windows accounts and forms-based accounts can be augmented with additional claims that are used by SharePoint Server 2010.

Classic-mode authentication: which supports Windows authentication

If you select classic-mode, you can implement Windows authentication and the user accounts are treated by SharePoint Server 2010 as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) accounts.

In Onet.xml file you can specify the features that you want to associate to this site definition in the SiteFeatures and WebFeatures elements. Site scoped features are placed in element and Web scoped features are placed in element. So, If your list template feature is Site scoped add a Feature node with feature GUID as its ID attribute inside element.
