Hi Markus

SLES10 is a great choice of operating system. We have been beta testing it for 
some time now in house, and now that the release version is out we plan to 
upgrade most of our production servers. SLE stands for SUSE Linux Enterprise, 
and packages in that directory should work on both SLED (SUSE Linux 
Enterprise Desktop) and SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) version 10. We 
are using the packages ourselves on SLES 10 x86_64 (SunFire Opteron based 
servers) but they are automatically built for 32bit also, and I see no reason 
why they shouldn't work on SLED if you feel the need to deploy a radius 
server on a workstation for some reason :-)

I am glad the spec files work for you (Not surprised, but glad none the 
less :-) and you are of course more than welcome to use my binary packages. 
They should be available on any of the OpenSUSE mirrors, although I may move 
them from "home:peternixon" into a "real" project as soon as I figure out 
what to call it. (Network:Infrastructure maybe?)
