I would just like to take this opportunity to thank RedHat for their
wonderfully consistent naming of packages. I just did not *think*, being
so used to RedHat version numbers being way out of sync with reality,
thanks to their backport policy.

(Departs to *fix* things - with prejudice.)

Thanks for pointing out my stupidity to me.

The 2.x version of FreeRADIUS on RHEL 5 is available under the package 
name freeradius2. This is documented in the RHEL release notes and the 
Red Hat FreeRADIUS FAQ http://wiki.freeradius.org/Red_Hat_FAQ
