Using the AEGIS client for linux


I am running Fedora Core 2 in linux, and I'm going to the University of Pittsburgh main campus. Here, they use an 802.1X client to authenticate users on the network, which meant I had to get a client for linux. Luckily, there is a client (the one that we are issued for windows) called AEGIS that runs under Fedora 2. So I installed Aegis, and it seems like everything is setup and running just fine, however there is a problem getting a DHCP lease. It just hangs and I never end up getting a lease. I've contacted the University's help desk, but they just tell me that Linux isn't supported. I'm fairly certian that it's not a problem with Aegis, I just can't seem to get the DHCP lease.

Any ideas?
