The main FreeRADIUS site points to docs on how to configure 802.1X. See http:/deployingradius.com/
If you want to know how to configure the client side... go read the docs for the client. There are hundreds of possible 802.1X clients. We can't document all of them.

Then learn. If you think you can successfully configure a complex system you don't understand... you don't understand how complex it is.

Ask RH how to configure their clients to do 802.1X.
We document FreeRADIUS.
