Is it possible to store passwords in the user table as MD5 hashes

Yes you can. I've been doing so for years.

Hi Jason,

Thanks -- can you please elaborate?

The closest I've seen that's possible is using crypt-md5, and I'd rather skip that and just store MD5 hashes alone. What I'm not clear on is how to configure Fedora Core 5 (specifically /etc/sysconfig/ authconfig) to use plain MD5 hashes instead of crypt-md5.

Can you please explain what configuration changes you've made, if any, in order to make this work?

Thank you!
