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.
