dpends on what OS you have - and, under Linux, which distro you have.

if you have installed from a package, then that package should have
supplied the required start/stop scripts for the system and then you can
use the OS's chosen service solution to configure whether/when the service
is started.

if you have built from source, then there are a few scripts supplied
in the source tarball that can be used - eg there is a script for
RedHat - just copy that script into /etc/init.d and do a 'chkconfig radiusd  


Guess I did forget to include that. I am using Fedora 11, installed from  
CD, and when I
do a 'chkconfig radiusd on', it says no such file or directory.
