Could anyone please tell me if Radius authentication is supported on the Cisco WS-C2924-XL running 12.0(5)XU and if so, point me in the direction of a document on how to configure it please?

Thanks in advance.

c2900XL-c3h2s-mz-120.5-XU.bin is actually an older image.. go figure:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps637/prod_release_notes_list.html

It appears that you have to actually upgrade to 12.0(5)WC train, but at least a WC5; the latest is 12.0.5-WC17(ED)

Minimum Memory: DRAM:16 MB  Flash:8 MB

Here is a config guide specifically for the 2900:
