It would be the same configuration as if you were using just the Cisco switch.

The Cisco switch will more then likely do session based authentication rather than port based. 

This means for your setup that you do not have to keep in mind the unmanaged switch. As its traffic passes the cisco switch it will require that traffic to do authentication.

 

Your configuration (as Tim says) should only consider the Cisco switch. All clients connected to the unmaned switch will behave as if they were coonnected directly to the Cisco switch.
