The passwords are not stored plain text in the passwd file, they have to
be encrypted with the crypt() function.  There's a utility available
that I just finished work on this past week which will maintain the
passwd and readers files for you automatically (it works similar to the
regular Unix passwd program).  You can get it from .  It's called cvspwd (though I'm thinking
of renaming it so as not to get it confused with an older program by the
same name).  Anyways, I think you'll find it ideal for what you want.
