Process of machine authentication

Hi,

I'm struggling to understand the process of machine authentication on server 2008, particular in a wireless 802.1x enviroment.  can anyone explain exactly what (information) and when (in the authentication or boot process) the client sends to the authentication server.

Thanks

Normally, when a computer on a domain starts it authenticates with a DC on the domain using its computer name and computer password - the password is set automatically and by default is renegotiated automatically every 30 days.

802.1x adds to this see http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/ArubaOS-and-Controllers/802-1x-Machine-and-User-Authentication/td-p/8886
