I'm sorry I assumed it was the HOWTO that was wrong, but the HOWTO did
say, "...I tested this instructions on CentOS 5.0 and CentOS 5.1. CentOS
5.x came with FreeRadius 1.1.3..."
As we are using OEL 5.4 I thought this would be OK.

Ah! That is good news. The problem is that I'm working under
constraints of a support agreement that will only allow us to install
the packages that come with OEL 5.x, so at the moment, 1.1.3 is the only
thing I can work with :-(

I will have a look at the dictionary. Thanks again.
