There's always pam_radius.so...

Check out the PAM modules page:

I'm guessing you'd need to mod /etc/pam.d/login (and friends) to
contain a line something like:

password required /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so radius shadow nullok use_authtok

Be careful.  Horsing around with the pam auth files is like Russian 
roulette, unless you're absolutely sure of what you're doing..  Of course,
there's always single user mode. :-)
