NT Passwords

we would like to activate PEAP authentication with openLDAP.

According to radiusd.conf

#Note that NT-Passwords MUST be stored as a 32-digit hex
#  string, and MUST start off with "0x", such as:
#       0x000102030405060708090a0b0c0d0e0f
#  Without the leading "0x", NT-Passwords will not work.
#  This goes for NT-Passwords stored in SQL, too.

The problem is that samba itself and othe management tools like webmin 
store the NT and the LM password as 32.digit hex string but without the 
0x. I tried to add the 0x but the logon to main domain does not work 
with this added.
Is there a good reason why freeradius needs a differen tformat then samba ?
