On the contrary, Simo's link is exactly the solution to your problem.

PyKota can even authenticate users through PAM if you ask their
username and password at the same time you ask them for a billing
code through PyKotIcon.

PyKotIcon is cross platform, and does not need to be installed on each
client. Personally I run it from Samba's logon script from a Samba
share each time an users logs in from a Windows box (you can also
launch it under *nix from your .xsession or similar file)
