Programatically provision users to server.

Yes I do plan on using a RoR application to make the changes to the MySQL
So I think this is coming together. However, the username and password...
where is the user responsible for using those credentials.

Would a user connect to my WiFi network, then authenticate against the
RADIUS server using credentials obtained through a Ruby on Rails

Here's the workflow I am thinking to build this:

1. User connects to WiFi network.
2. User is directed to a Ruby on Rails application.
3. Application authorizes user to connect, creates credentials
and propagates them to FreeRadius.
4. Application gives credentials to user.
5. User enters credentials (where?)

I need hotspot functionality so I am almost there in terms of everything I
need to build. Are these points rational? Also, where are the credentials
entered in #5? Wouldn't I just need to deliver an IP or something to that
machine at that point?
