As I recall the Cistron sources still build on centos-4, but
freeRadius is the future, and also builds on centos. I do not
know the patches you are thinking of to the pppd; I assume we
are talking about a multiport serial card to be worth the
effort? More details are needed, but it should all still work
just as it did on RHL7.
I am probably the last subscriber still on the RH PPP list,
and at one time published a patch for an option back in the
RHL days which fixed a broken RH option in the PPPD package
for Windows unit support. Ask with specific questions if you
hit a hard spot -- I still have two dialup ISP clients running
local modem pools.
