Except that if the system is using shadow passwords, the crypted password
will be in /etc/shadow and only root can get at it. Also, some systems
(eg mine :P ) are using MD5 for passwords instead of crypt.

Has anyone done any work on a mod_auth_pam? Ooh, interesting code idea.
I need a new project ;)

Rob.
