I'd definitely be interested in what Josh and Dale are discussing here...
we can't seem to get SQLServer service to load before RadiusNT wants to
load so we wind up stopping and re-starting the RadiusNT service manually
each time the our authentication machine reboots...

My vote is a resounding 'yes' for a program or dll that'd test to see if
auth is working and would stop/start RadiusNT service if needed.
