Is there something available that is comparable to typical release notes for freeradius?

Have a look at doc/ChangeLog in the source

It should work on RedHat 3, if it doesn't let us know :-)

Installation requirements vary wildly depending on which modules you want to 
use. If you want to use an Oracle backend then you will need to at a minimum 
have the oracle client library installed. If you just want to do radius auth 
from a text file then it has practically no external dependencies. PAM auth 
will require pam of course..

Here is the the list of Build Requirements from my rpm spec file for _mostly_ 
full support. (No oracle, DB2 or Firebird). Hope it helps:
