I am trying to setup Network Access Protection on Server 2008.  I don't a switch that supports the 802.1x so I can't implement NAP with 802.1x.  How can I enable NAP on the network, all i'm wanting is to check if the wired network computers or any computer plugged into the network has anti-virus that is up-to-date?

You can enforce NAP using DHCP if your DHCP server is running Windows Server 2008.  Additionally, you must verify that all your workstations support NAP (Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R1/R2, Windows 7).

If you have Windows XP clients, you will need to get a NAP client or install Service Pack 3 (64-bit clients are currently not supported in Windows XP).

I looked at DHCP, but all of our computers are using a static IP address.  From what I read it will only work if you are using DHCP and if you put in a static IP address it will get around the NAP.

That is correct.  You would need to change everything to DHCP.

NAP is reliant on either DHCP, a Cisco NAP applinance, or a NAP-aware switch in order to enforce connectivity.  As far as I have seen, NAP will not work without special hardware except with DHCP.
