I'm upset about my problem and not english speaker. I'm reading docs
many times about a subject I don't understand quite good.
I reacted a bit angrily, my apologizes.

I don't deny the value of anybody. I have some constraints on my
installation and have to fit them. I prefer a "I don't know" than a
"you're deaf".

I can *not*

file raddb/modules/ntlm_auth doesn't exist (the directory modules
doesn't either). So I added 
ntlm_auth = "/usr/bin/ntlm_auth ..." in the mschap on radiusd.conf
As I understand I have to send an mschap request because my radtest
version doesn't, right ?

As other problem DEFAULT     Auth-Type = ntlm_auth  is not recognize
in users file because section is not define.

I think the 2 problems are linked but cannot find a doc about this
damn 2.0.4 version that explain how to create the "module".
