if u can also include how u r getting authenticated....

thanks a lot of Masand for your help.I finally got my problem solved,something similar to this.
I had reinstalled RH9.0,selected the static IP's instead of the DHCP at the installation.reinstalled the client and gave the configuration details..
You were right when you said that the client was not authenticating in my case..

PS:I wont forget to "thanks" u.
