Description osi 1999-05-07 06:50:21 UTC
When doing a kickstart installation with RedHat 6.0
(kickstart is great!) and writing something like

rootpw --iscrypted 8d78LWoez74ef

in the kickstart file sets the root password to "8d78LWoe".
--iscrypted still worked in 5.2.  I quickly looked through
the code in install2, but there were little changes in
the password code, so I could not figure the problem out.
I have --useshadow in auth config.
