We use nocat here as well for our wireless users and it has been working
well so far, although there are issues that we need to address (email me
offline for details if you're interested).
The only problem I see in using it for wired network authentication is
throughput, but if its only going to be used for public clusters you're
probably okay. I've heard claims that a Linux/iptables firewall can do
400mb/s (With gig interfaces), but haven't actually tested one yet...

give nocatauth a look
connect to the network using DHCP, you bring up a web browser, type in
and you'll get an authentication screen. authenticate first then you can
