The answer is probably, if you recompile login, ftp, etc. to use PAM,
and then configure PAM appropriately.  But it sounds like a big pain,
and I'm not sure how you'd get UID's and GID's from a RADIUS server.
You'd still need /etc/passwd and /etc/group entries.  And you'd need to
provide a way for users to change their passwords... and so on.

Sounds like a better idea might be to hack RADIUS to use NIS for
authentication.  But then again I can only guess about what you're
trying to accomplish.

Good luck,
