scouf scouf,

basically install freeradius and read through every file in 
/etc/freeradius ........


I've been monitoring the list for a while, and a lot of people don't 
understand that the configuration files is VERY well documented....

Basically the configuration files is also a log of the documentation.
(I new NOTHING about radius before I started.  I simply read though ALL 
the files in /etc/freeradius, and it helped a LOT).

Might be worth it to mention that in the documentation section on the 
download page....
