I am looking at making a dedicated RAS server using windows 2003.  I have an IBM 336 3.0 ghz server with 4 gig of ram.  Would this be suitable for a 10-20 connection RAS?  If not, what would be?

Yes, the server meets requirements :) If those users would not be using resources on VPN server concurrently it should be good :)

I guess to this properly, I need another server for RADIUS or is that absolutely needed?

for 10-20 connection their is no need for RADIUS , RADIUS required for large network wear you need separate server for VPN client authentication

if you want to enable Dial up connection (VPN connection ) for a user you just need to enable it via AD user properties

Yeah, RADIUS server is a "command center" for many RADIUS clients (VPN servers). It's a common place for authorization and authentication.

RADIUS server allows you to create policies once whereas you have to do the same policies on each VPN server (RADIUS client)
