Description Brian Ryner 1999-10-04 23:48:02 UTC
When you set the root password during the install it is not
MD5 encrypted- it uses the conventional encryption (whatever
that is).  User accounts created during install, however,
seem to get MD5 passwords.

This issue will be resolved in the next errata release.

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2000-06-10 14:51:38 UTC
This has been fixed in 6.2.
