You cannot use the client without a auth server.  However, the CVS version of 
the auth server does support what you want (not having anyone login, and 
redirecting to a custom URL instead of the node specific portal.

You still have full statistics in this mode, but based of MAC adress.

I would however wait a week or so before using the auth server from CVS, it's 
undergoing massive changes, and the install script is partially broken.

I'll let someone else answer questions 2 and 3.
