PowerPC Macs are able to access LEAP and PEAP networks when running  
later updates to Tiger; however, currently MacBook Pros are having  
difficulties connecting to LEAP networks. I have been in recent  
contact with AppleCare about this problem and have provided the  
engineers the specific details of my work network. I'd suggest going  
to Apple's Discussion Forums and search for PEAP. Also, check the  
Apple tech notes as there are a few relevant to connecting to PEAP  
and LEAP networks.
