there is not two different dictionanries, the support juste told you
that the dictionnary they gave is meant to be used with radclient
standalone installations. If you have a whole freeradius server
installled, most of the attributes contained in this file are already
definec elsewhere.

Just copy/paste the lines in between "BENGIN-VENDOR"  and "END-VENDOR"
to your dictionnary directory in a new file and add it to the list of
dictionnayr to load.... this should do the job.
