1) Setup a conversion portal where users can get their passwords rehashed into NT4-Password format, store those passwords in a database or LDAP directory.
2) Buy the cloudpath client, or use one of the other desolvable clients, use it to configure the native windows supplicant.
3) Hire someone who knows what they're doing to fix broken supplicant issues on your help desk.
In my experience if you do those three things you will minimise the seathing hatred of your users. If you implement eduroam so they can get on Facebook at other Universities then they might even like you a bit, once they realise what it's for.
