I tried exactly this a few days ago, and couldn't get it working.
Admittedly, I didn't spend too long on it, but I changed 'ntlm auth = yes'
to 'ntlm auth = mschapv2-and-ntlmv2-only' but freeradius then didn't
authenticate me..

Do let me know how it goes for you, I also thought that this setting would
be much better for me..

Alternatively.. if there is a way of setting 'ntlm auth' on a per-IP basis,
then I could only enable it for the freeradius server. I wonder if I can
add 'include = /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf.%I' and then include 'ntlm
auth = yes' in a smb.conf just for the freeradius server.. I will report
