I have ACS 3.3 version and i have seen the it has network admission control feature in it. I have cisco switches 3750G and windows servers 2003. Currently i am running machine/user authentication over EAP-PEAP and it seems running ok in my network. I have now a new requirement. we want to authorize the machine only when the machine has latest antivirus running on it. we have symantic antivirus on our machines.

I am new to network admission control and don't know much.

Can i do it with cisco ACS server? is we have to buy any equipment/software to accomplish this?  your help in this matter will be highly appriciated.

This is called NAC framework, and as far as I know this might be possible but you might find some limitations, see the following link for guides:

On the other hand the current NAC solution "Cisco Clean Access" Will allow you to play with it as desired, see:
