Description Nigel Metheringham 2000-03-30 11:17:04 UTC
In a change to the RH61 behaviour, the RH62 kickstart, if given
something like:-
	rootpw --iscrypted $1$YouThinkThisIsTheRealPW
	auth --useshadow --enablemd5

leaves the system with no root password at all

It would be nice to see the resolution of this bug, but somehow but 10377, the
one with the solution I presume is not viewable.
