FreeRADIUS, MySQL and usergroups

I want to built a RADIUS system with a MySQL database to authenticate / 
authorize users. One group of the users should be allowed to use the internet 
and an other group shoud be allowed to use the RAS server to dial in. Of 
course some of the users can use both. 

Can I use user groups in MySQL and let FreeRADIUS ask for a membership in that 

How can I do this with FreeRADIUS / MySQL? Any hints are welcome. Thanks.

Additionally: I read that SQUID can use a lot of AAA possibilities. I think 
PAM and the pam_radius module is the best solution. Any other suggestions? 
Thanks again.
