Users don't have to log onto NT's DOMAIN to gain Internet access, for
one. If you have 100 phone lines coming in, your NT servers have to have
at least 100 client licenses, plus enough for shares. With RADIUS,
they're never logging onto the NT box proper -- just to the Internet
service you provide, via RADIUS.
