I am trying to setup a WiFi network for my company that will support 1000 predefined users. We would like to Authenticate said users against a SQL DB. First off I am a total n00b in the Linux world, and this is my first venture into setting up anything Linux.. I have managed so far to install Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 (LTS) and install the Gnome GUI.
What im looking for is a good walk through if one exists, for installing FreeRadius, using MySQL for AAA Accounting, and if possible some sort of management system (Daloradius?). I have found this walk through :

http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up-a-freeradius-based-aaa-server-with-mysql-and-management-with-daloradius
 
But its for version 8.04 and I'm not sure if this is still an applicable walk through for my version, or if there was something better someone in the know, could point me to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time

The method should still apply although some packages may be more modern.

I would say  go ahead and post your questions here when you run into issues....

Alright i ran into a road block immediately on this one. I'm trying to run the first step on this walk through (http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up-a-freeradius-based-aaa-server-with-mysql-and-management-with-daloradius) which is :
sudo su -

apt-get install   debhelper  libltdl3-dev libpam0g-dev \
libmysqlclient15-dev build-essential libgdbm-dev \
libldap2-dev libsasl2-dev libiodbc2-dev libkrb5-dev snmp \
autotools-dev dpatch  libperl-dev libtool dpkg-dev libpq-dev \
libsnmp-dev libssl-dev

and i keep getting :
E: Couldn't find package libmysqlclient15-dev

I tried removing the line \ libmysqlclient15-dev build-essential libgdbm-dev \ and i am getting the same result with libldap2-dev. I did some fishing and came up with this article : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1676973
I tried the step mentioned but had no luck. I think Ubuntu doesn't know where to look for these packages that im asking it for with Apt-get... But im not sure. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

try to install each package separate.
apt-get install debhelper
apt-get install libltdl3-dev...



libmysqlclient15 mostprobably is superseeded into a higher version library (16 or 17?)
same for the others... try to find the current version of the libraries you have and install the -dev (these are the symbol tables & static libraries, needed to be able to install from source.)
Maybe using aptitude is a better frontend to use?
