  I'll second Alan Buxey's comments:

- third-party documentation is usually out of date, and is almost always wrong
- the server comes with tons of documentation and examples.  They're up to date, and correct
- the wiki has even more docs and examples
- run the server in debug mode (radiusd -X), and *read* the output.
- if you don't understand the output, post it to the list and we'll help you.
