Yes. You would need a real hard drive, not a CF card, as continuous
writes would rapidly destroy the card. You would install the Linux
flavor of your choice and add freeradius to it. It would not be very quick.

This would be a lot tougher. first, you would have to expand the disk
image considerably to "install" free radius. This would expand the
memory footprint, and the 4501 has limited memory. Also, since m0n0wall
loads the entire config at boot and runs from memory, and any logs or
configuration is lost at each boot.
You best bet is to find another PC at that location or somewhere on the
internet and load freeradius on it. It is not a big deal for a real PC
to have it added. You could use a home PC even, if you just leave it on.
