Thanks Alan and Samuel.  I d/l the mod-auth_radius and got it
installed.  I haven't successfully gotten it to work, but I haven't
spent enough time yet.  Task for today.

WebDAV will allow either Basic or Digest (it uses the same HTTP Auth
mechanism that Apache provides) so I think it will work.  Even with
DAV On, you can have AuthType Basic - so my assumption at this point
is that it will work.  I'll report back to the list.
