accounting/billing radius authentication package for linux

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where I might be able to find a cheap or free ISP billing account radius authentication package for linux?

you generally do not combine radius and billing. obviously billing is the main reason that radius accouting exists, but a radius server is only generally used to recieve the acct packets and place them somewhere. you would then use that data by another application. for the actual radius part, we would naturally suggest freeradius, but i'm afraid i've no knowledge of the accounting side. i would expect that if you have nothing else to bill on, it would be a simple process to scan the logs yourself.

Ok, thanks so is there something you would suggest for billing if they are generally used as 2 different programs?

I'm just researching this stuff for a friend of mine who's looking to update his out of date software for his ISP.

I have no real knowledge of this but a quick search on google "open source billing system"

Of which I checked out and found it nice looking at first glance?
