I second that...freeradius.  It comes with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9, 10, and 11 or can be downloaded.  Not a bad process to configure either but the radius.conf file is rather long.  You have to make changes to the LDAP section to allow the authentication to eDirectory.  To windows domains, there are several alternatives listed in the file and corresponding parameters for all.

I don't think i understand the question. Do you want the Radius server to authenticate to eDirectory (clients connect to radius and radius ask eDirectory if credentials are correct) or the other way around (clients connect to eDirectory, and eDirectory checks with Radius)

AFAIK eDirectory and Active Directory cannot be configured to check authentication with another Radius or LDAP server.
You probably need a product like Identity Manager to sync credentials between Radius, eDirectory and Active Directory

Instead of using wep or wap to connect to the wireless I would like to use raidus and have there credentials for edirectory or active directory authenticate them to be able to connect to the wireless. Is this possible? or am I looking at it wrong?

they are using cisco wireless controllers 4400 which is able to use radius. and I have seen free radius used with edirectory but cannot find anything that can be installed on one device and pull from edirectory and active directory at the same time.  Any suggestions
There are sections in the radius.conf file that will allow you to go to both directories.  I don't have a recent radius.conf file available to me but the sections are obvious as you go about the config.  I've only used freeradius on SUSE Linux 9 and 10.  Do you have a Linux server to do this with?
