HELP!!! Need to setup a RADIUS server for my wireless network.

Hi, I am looking into a better way to secure our wireless network.  I keep coming across WPA2 with RADIUS as a solution.  Can anyone give me links or directions of how to setup a Windows RADIUS server so I can enforce better secure wireless connections for my student body on campus?

I can build it in as a Server 2003 or Server 2008 box.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks erniebeek.  The 2003 is an excellent link.  The 2008 is more intrusive to my AD & network for the setup that is.  I forgot to mention, I have ISA servers in place and would like to keep them that way as to utilize the VPN clients we have created.  Will this interfere with the WPA2 with RADIUS setup?

Basically, I am just trying to secure the Open Network between the mobile clients and the WAP when they initially authenticate with their VPN client.  Trying to eliminate the clear text issue during the authentication part.

On the Server 2008 side, does RADIUS require NPS?
Ernie BeekExpertCommented:
Yup, NPS is the descendant of IAS.
