I have not used Win2K3 for my radius/LDAP combo but with my
FreeRadius/OpenLDAP combo I did just as you said above.
I went into the "RADIUS MAC authentication" section of captive portal.
Set the check box to enable. Then set a shared secret. I then used this
secret as the password on the user who's username was the MAC with
colon's. This seemed to work for me.
