MAC authentication on Procurve2524

Is it possible to have MAC-Address authentication against a Radius Server on a Procurve 2524? I've seen that this feature is available on 2600 series, but not on 25xx? Is it true? Is there a workaround? I would like to authenticate computers (and assign vlan) that connect to my 2524 edge switches by MAC address using a radius server.

Thanks a lot for the help!

MAC authentication on a 2500 series switch isn't possible against a radius server.
Only workaround for putting machines in a particular VLAN is using machine based 802.1x for authentication.
