Description Zack Cerza 2004-10-05 11:41:20 EDT
My ks.cfg specifies the password in plaintext - 'rootpw hackme' - but
s-c-k leaves the password entry boxes blank, and the "encrypt root
password" box checked. If I immediately save my ks.cfg after opening
it, I'm prompted to set a root password.

Fixed in CVS.  Note I also won't encrypt a string starting with $1$ if
iscrypted is set, so both parsing of encrypted and unencrypted
passwords in ks.cfg should work
