On RHEL5 make sure you install the freeradius2 set of packages, not the
freeradius packages. RHEL5 initially shipped with freeradius 1.x, but
you want to be running 2.x. In RHEL we can't remove a previously shipped
major version of a package so we had to add freeradius2 in order to make
version 2.x available.
