Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2000-01-05 13:38:33 UTC
When installing with kickstart, specifying password and encryption options:


****************
# The password

rootpw mypass

# Authentication - use MD5 and shadow

auth --enablemd5 --useshadow
*****************

MD5-passwords are enabled, but the specified password is stored in the
traditional way.

Issue is fixed in the latest installer (available in beta)
