Wow, much more complex than the existing external documentation suggests.  Is 
there any documentation of all the steps necessary to do a PPTP authorization 
for Windows clients?  (I realize that if one understood all of the things 
freeradius was capable of and all of the steps that it went through to 
perform such an authorization, the documentation in the files would be 
sufficient, but I lack such expertise.)
