i don't use a database, but for the normal flat textfile you set the mac 
address as username and as password.
The switch(i have procurves) sends the macadress as both username and 
password to the radius server.

AW: AW: Authenticate by MAC address

To do authentication by MAC-address. Maybe some settings in radiusd.conf 
smth another conf. file. I can hardly believe it's just typing the
MAC-adress into the database and it works?

  You have mixed that up.  The MySQL schema attempts to mirror the
"users" file.  So see "man users", and the "users" file for examples of
what to do.

  To do what?
