Description Michael K. Johnson 2000-03-27 17:21:54 EST
A kickstart install with an MD5 hashed root password specified as
rootpw --iscrypt foo
and md5 and shadow enabled puts the root password in the /etc/passwd
file instead of the /etc/shadow file and leaves the password field
blank in the /etc/shadow file, resulting in such machines not even
asking for a password when you try to log in as root.
