No, it does not. That question is about Microsoft supplicant
implementation, not about the PEAP protocol.. If the Microsoft
implementation does not support more than one inner authentication
method, it does not automatically mean that the protocol does not..

"Microsoft PEAP" is often used with PEAPv0/MS-CHAPv2 and "Cisco PEAP"
with PEAPv1/GTC, but the protocol itself (both v0 and v1) allows any
tunneled EAP method to be used.
