  It loads it in the default configuration.

  It's not.  It's in raddb/modules/files.

  You seemed to have copied the Cistron configuration to FreeRADIUS.
Or, done something similar to break the default configuration.

  Don't do that.

  The default configuration works.  Use it.  Make the *minimal* changes
necessary to get your Cistron config working.  It shouldn't be hard.
Just copy the "users" file, and not much else.
