Server Suggestion

We have a similar setup... about the same number of APs and users, more 
online simultaneously.  And, we're enforcing PEAP reauths every 15 minutes.

We're running 2 Dell Poweredge 650s, each with a single 2.4GHz P4, 512MB 
RAM, single 40GB hard drive in failover.  The first 650 takes the brunt 
of the auth traffic, but, since RADIUS and even EAP-TLS is really low 
overhead, those servers hardly ever see a load average of .1 unless I'm 
doing something like compiling a new version of the FR code.
