Thank you for that reply.  I installed FreeRadius last
night from the repository and it works great.  I
checked the repository before I tried to install using
the source.  However, I didn't see Freeradius on the
list.  Once I added the universal repository from
Ubuntu, I was able to install Freeradius successfully.
