How do I setup in the simplest of ways a Captive Portal? One that is possible on a setup of 1 wireless router and 2 computers. No billing, only authentication.

Also, is it possible to do with Mac OS X machines?

Have a look at the pfsense Firewall distribution. It features captive portal and can even be installed on small appliances, like the Alix board (they have some with Wifi support).
