When you run 'radiusd -A' (I suppose you're root), you are running the
radius Server as Root.

When you run /etc/init.d/radiusd start, it switches to the 'radiusd' user
identity (in FC5).

So it is possible that you have a permission issue on some config file.

Try to run:
# su - radiusd --shell /bin/bash
$ radiusd -X

You'll see if there is a permision issue.
