FR Using MAC Authentication

I have just started tinkering with Freeradius, I built an Ubuntu 8.10 server box and installed FR --> sudo apt-get install freeradius*. It installed in a breeze and tested fine. I have setup a HP420 AP for testing, it's chattering with the FR box fine (I think).
I want my wireless clients to do MAC authentication via the FR box. I have setup my users file to auth two of my test laptops:
000E35-84610A Auth-Type := Local, User-Password == "esradius"
00215C-08B25D Auth-Type := Local, User-Password == "esradius"
When either tries to connect up, in the FR debug I see:
rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host 10.10.18.241:2160, id=7, length=53
User-Name = "00215c-08b25d"
User-Password = "00215c-08b25d"
Processing the authorize section of radiusd.conf
The authentication eventually fails:
rlm_pap: WARNING! No "known good" password found for the user. Authentication may fail because of this.
Why is the User-Password the MAC address and not what is specified in the users file? I have only tweaked the users and clients.conf files.
Just simple MAC authentication, that's all I want at this point.
Thanks in advance!
