We had to make RADIUSNT not start up automatically because it would
sometimes win the race with SQL Server, so wouldn't process incoming calls.
To get around this, we set the startup in the Services window to "Manual"
and start it as I showed above. RADIUSNT is running as a Service, just
being started a bit later via the batch file.
