There is nothing to change on the radius server. Pap works by default.

You need to make an entry like this in users file:

mac-add-ress     Cleartext-Password := "mac-add-ress"
                 That-Alvarion-VSA = "that_string"

*You* will have to come up with the string. We can't make it up for you.
There is nothing misterious in their instructions - you should know answer
to all of these (do you want features on or off, what VLAN is/are to be
used, if any, ...).
