What about using a transparent squid proxy?  Squid supports a tonne of 
authentication methods.

If you put squid as people's default gateway then you can transparently 
redirect all web requests through squid, if they hadn't authenticated then 
you could have an authentication box pop up or redirect them to an 
authentication webpage if you prefer.

Not sure of your topology so this may not be a suitable solution (I know it's 
not quite what you asked for).
