Problems authenticating with a Cisco ASA 5510

Doing some more digging, it seems like the wireless clients being caught
by eap for auth, whereas the ASA is falling through to files, and
eventually system, which doesnt really do anything.

Anyone know how to make the authenticating go to eap when the ASA
connects, or show me a better workaround?
