Q:  Was the fedora installation originally using the freeradius-1.0.2.rpm
package?  If so, then the /etc/init.d/radiusd script will need to be updated
with the proper binary and library directories.  This can easily be done by
the following command:  
$ cp /usr/local/sbin/rc.radiusd /etc/init.d/radiusd
***NOTE:  be certain the radiusd process is stopped prior to updating the
init.d script.

The RPM package installation passes different paths to radiusd on startup
and this would explain the "No such file or directory" error.  I ran into
this problem recently on fedora core 4.
