802.1x (wired) at startup on OS X


I've been looking for an answer to this for sometime. So far zilch.

I'm trying to get the 802.1x client(supplicant on wired interface) to start before anyone logs into the system. The only way to initiate an 802.1x session is to log in and manually run Internet Connect.

I haven't found any free,3rd-party supplicants for OSX, does anyone know of one? Does anyone know if this will be a feature of leopard? Is it possible to start up the supplicant manually via startup script?
