I need some help in configuring the radius server.It would be great if one
of you could guide me to the solution.

Here are my system details.

(its a 1und1 Virtual Server) 
SUSE 9.3 
FreeRADIUS 1.1.1 
und openssl-0.9.7e-3 

I have created a CA and Certficates using openssl.
The names of these files are masterkey.pem and master_cert.pem respectively.
They are kept in the /usr/local/etc/raddb/masterkeys directory. 

I took the following steps.
Created CA with the following:
/usr/share/ssl/misc/CA.sh -newca 

Signing request with: 
openssl req -new -nodes -keyout masterkey.pem -out masterreq.pem 

openssl ca -out master_cert.pem -infiles ./masterreq.pem 

certificate_file und private_key_file =
CA_file = ${raddbdir}/masterkeys/cacert.pem 

But after following the above standard procedure, i cannot start my radius
server and its 
not clear to me what could be the actuall problem.Here are the last few
lines of my error messages 
that i get when i start the server.

rlm_eap_tls: Loading the certificate file as a chain 
rlm_eap_tls: Error reading Trusted root CA list 
rlm_eap: Failed to initialize type tls 
radiusd.conf[10]: eap: Module instantiation failed. 
radiusd.conf[1893] Unknown module "eap". 
radiusd.conf[1840] Failed to parse authenticate section.
