  Uh... no.  PLease *read* the documentation for pam_radius_auth.  It
allows *other* programs to use RADIUS for authentication.  It is *not*
what you want.

  Please read the PAM module configuration: raddb/modules/pam

  It explains how to get PAM working with the server.

  The server includes documentation.  If you're configuring a module, it
wouldn't hurt to read the configuration file and the documentation for it.
