I go throught these instructions and afterwards I get locked our of my router.  I can reboot and get it back but why is this?
I did not have a login specified for the vty line 0 4.  Just a Banner and required password and ena password.

What part are you tring to do? Setup RADIUS/Tacacs+ authentication, or IPSEC?
How do you mean locked out? Do you lose your telnet session?
What is the last command that you enter before being locked out?
Can you post your complete config, and what it is you are trying to accomplish?

I just specify the IP address of the RADIUS server,
along with the RADIUS shared secret key the I decided to log out and then back in
and it brings us a login which I have none.  Never set one?  I can't post the config
I was about to set up the RADIUS server after but I can't get in the router to turn on debug to
see if I am getting in.  Weird?

Not weird if you use "default" as in:
   aaa authentication login default group radius

If that's what you are doing, try:

 aaa authentication login default group radius
 aaa authentication login noradius local
 username <user1> password <password>
line vty 0 4
 login authentication noradius

OR:
   aaa authentication login default group radius none
                                                                   ^^^^
