	We have no problem authenticating about ~16000+ users on a single
	dual pentium-pro 200 running FreeBSD.  This is all auth'd out of
	flat files for now (Working on AuthBy SQL).  Of course, there are
	weird things that happen once in a while (Like Radiator Blocking
	when you are doing a large change on the Database)...but overall
	I'm fairly pleased with the performance.

	Keep in mind that radius packets are generally small in relation
	to other types of traffic.

	The accounting logs and session database are stored on a MySQL box
	with about 5G used.
