Thanks Alan.

I know this isn't a Cisco list or support area but I got told off for
not following instructions so I just wanted to follow suite and follow
up with the fact that I have been listening to your suggestions.

I apologies if I tested your patience however, for whatever reason I
seem to be finding RADIUS extremely difficult to understand - in terms
of the config from the site FAQ/Wiki etc.... I just wish it was easier
so that I didn't need to look as bad as I do already :-(
