Is it possible to have eap-peapv0 connect before xp shows logon box?

So, I was going to use eap-tls to have the windows xp workstations sign
into the wireless network before the user logs on (by assigning a cert
to the machine account) but tls is not working for users or machines and
I would like to have a backup. I have eap-peopv0 and eap-ttls working
fine but they require a client username and password to connect and
those are not supplied until the user logs in. We have many clients here
on roaming profiles, so their profiles time out if I set them to peap or
ttls since the wireless doesnt fire up in time after they log in.
Is there a way to get peap or ttls (with ttls I use the SecureW2 client)
to connect before the user logs on? I know that sounds lame because peap
and ttls need a username and password... but maybe we can assign it
statically in the background to the machine account or something? What
are others doing? I really dont want wpa2-aes with a psk.
Thanks for any ideas. Hopefully I can get the eap-tls thing sorted out
with help but would like a backup plan.
