A bit lost.

Ok, went through and reinstalled everything. I got freeradius working 
through text files with test users and got the Accept messages.

Now I am trying to setup Dialup Admin following the installation guide 
and this is where I am running into issues.

When running "radiusd" i am getting the following error after it loads 
the other modules. This is after I configured radiusd.conf for sql, 
before hand radius loaded up fine using the text files. The guides I am 
using are http://www.frontios.com/freeradius.html and 

*Module: Loaded SQL
rlm_sql (sql): Could not lnk driver rlm_sql_mysql: rlm_sql_mysql.so: 
cannot open shared object file. No such file or directory
rlm_sql (sql): Make sure it (and all its dependent librariers!) are in 
the earch path of your system's Id.
radiusd.conf[14]: sql: Module instantation failed.
raidus.conf[1798] unkown moduel 'sql'
radiusd.conf[1727] failed to parse authorize section.

*I do have phpmyadmin installed with mysql 4.1.13 and everything seems 
to be working. I created all databases through phpmyadmin and granted a 
user "radius" with a password to access to the database and added it to 
the sql.conf file found in the /etc/raddb

Last time when I went through this process adding the user fixed my 
issue with Dialup Admin not being able to connect the database. Now I 
have no clue exactly what it is with the driver rlm_sql_mysql.

Thanks for the help
