[Chilli] coova-chilli on Debian Lenny

I have a Debian (Lenny) server running coova-chilli and have some trouble
getting dhcp leases past connected AP's.

Set-up as follows:

Modem <---> Debian server <---> AP

The AP, a wrt54gl w/Tomato firmware, is getting a dhcp lease from
coova-chilli. Clients do not. If I connect the ethernet cable from the
server to one of the LAN ports on the router, clients get ip, but is not

Since the router gets an ip, I suspect there is error(s) in my way of
configuring the router. To clear up misconceptions:

* From a standalone pc running coova-chilli, should the ethernet cable
connect to the LAN or the WAN port of the router ?

* I believe the router's dhcp should be off, but how should I set the
router's LAN ip ?

* Should the router's gateway be set to coova-chilli ?

A little server info:
Freeradius (and Daloradius) is working as it should, the interface facing
internet gets an ip from the modem and the tun0 interface facing the AP is
getting the ip from coova-chilli. Eth1 that physically connects the
server and the AP is not brought up and is not given an ip, this seem
correct to me.

What I try to achieve:
A central server + "dumb" nodes that can authenticate users by way of
Freeradius, coova-chilli and apache in one package.

Hopefully these are trivial questions that will make you laugh, point and in
your guruness provide a solution:)
