Setting up RAS

Can someone give me instructions on doing this on an ASA5505. I have done this on a pix506e, never an ASA.
I have the vpn pool defined. I also have a Radius server which will be used, but I'm not sure how to include it

    As far as the RADIUS config goes, here is an example:

    First define your RADIUS server:

    aaa-server RADIUS protocol radius
    aaa-server RADIUS (inside) host
    key <radiuskey>

    Then instruct the tunnel-group to use RADIUS for authentication.

    tunnel-group "remotevpn" type remote-access
    tunnel-group "remotevpn" general-attributes
     authentication-server-group RADIUS

    thanks, are the rest of the commands pretty similar to the pix for setting up the rest?

    As far as setting up remote access VPN you mean?  Yes, very similar.  Using ASDM and the VPN wizard helps also if you want to go that route.
