RadiusNT Questions

Ok. After doing my homework/research, it looks like RadiusNT is definitely
the way to go. However, I do have a few questions.

First, I see that RadiusNT can use the NT User Database for authenticating.
But is there a way to get the user info from the NT User database into the
ODBC database used by RadiusNT? This would be very helpful. Then I could
do queries on my users from an Access Database or perhaps use Cold Fusion
to produce some nice applications which pull from the RadiusNT ODBC
database. I could also create a table in the database which would have the
user name, address, etc. info (I am sure Emerald makes this part simple).

Secondly, is there a way to use RadiusNT with NT 4.0 RAS? This would
allow me to get RadiusNT now and starting setting it up before we implement
the PM3.

Third, do I have to create the inital database with all of the Tables,
Fields, etc. or does it come with a template databse to get started. I was
thinking of using MS Access 7.0 to create the data source.

Fourth, will RadiusNT use clear text for authenticating or does it require
PAP or CHap?

Fifth, is there a way to have RadiusNT to authenticate by firsting
searching the NTUserdatabase then the ODBC. I was just wondering if I
would have to always enter users in the NT database or can I also enter
them in the ODBC or a text file.

I have other questions, but this is all I can think of at the momemnt.
Thanks for your responses.
