I need to set up TACACS for wireless using CiscoSecure ACS v.2.3.  Is this possible?  I keep seeing guides for 3.0 and above but not 2.3.  It's about $4000.00 for an upgrade for the ACS.  Also, I could use Radius on Windows 2000 but I'm not sure if the clients need to be 2000 or above.  Some of mine are actually Win98.  This is a fairly large change as we have about 38 of these units around the country that will be authenticating here.  Any help you can give will be much appreciated.

My superiors want to use MAC and user authentication.  I dont care for the MAC but...  some of our wireless units are forklifts and maynot be able to be given usernames (I still have to check into that).

According to the user's guide at http://cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2086/products_user_guide_book09186a008007cd2b.html 
This ACS should handle TACACS+ as well as RADIUS.

While not directly related to your question, it seems a bit misguided to be implementing a security infrastructure when you have clients running Win '98.

The wireless cards on your forklift's computer will determine what kind of security they support.  Newer radios will have no problems with many variations of WAP, and WAP2.  Older radios will simply not support the latest security.
