You could figure out how to write a program to do this on your own. 
Instead things might be easier if you take a look at the code in the
standard package 
(Statistics`ContinuousDistributions`).

This package will generate random numbers (and much more) for various
distributions.  The distributions supported include Normal, Beta,
Gamma, Rayleigh and several others but not Rician.

Never the less you could add to the package using the same approach to
provide the distributions included.


Cheers,
