  The configuration files that the server comes with are pretty complete.

  To be honest, it's pretty much impossible to write any good HOWTO's
for RADIUS.  With tiny edits (as documented and explained in the
configs), the default configuration works with PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP,

  Follow the explanations in the config files, and add support for LDAP,
SQL, ...

  Any HOWTO will be not much more than "read the config files, and
follow their instructions".
