Not at the same time. I cleaned totally before I installed from source.

No, I followed the comments in the users file, and removed the # as I 

Now I commentet it out again, and put it in the top of the user file, no 

The user file is now exactly as when it came.

Thanks to Buxey, yes, I did restart.

What do you mean by entry, I can't find an explanaition, but the term is 
used a lot.

Is this a entry ?

(53) server inner-tunnel

I did'nt do anything that was not explecitly describes in the howto:

BUT the howto and the comments in the files, are not all in consensus 
with each other.

I just read 4 RFC's, and a lot of files, but I dont understand, thats 
why I ask.

What does NT/LM-Password mean, and why does it tell me:

(53) mschap: WARNING: No Cleartext-Password configured.  Cannot create 
(53) mschap: WARNING: No Cleartext-Password configured.  Cannot create 

when the top of the users file say:

bob     Cleartext-Password := "hello"

#       Configuration file for the rlm_files module.
#       Please see rlm_files(5) manpage for more information.

As far as I can see, i tryed following the official howto, then I tryed 
to follow the hints in the files, then I read this:

There where some usefull info: " The "myserverkeypassword" above will 
need to match the password you use when generating the server's keys later."

Then i deletet the old installation totally, read it all once again, 
followed the howto, then the fileinfo.

And of course, I got good help from this list, but now I am stuck.
