Even if MD5 is installed and working, programs like passwd won't use it by
default.  Can I guess passwd is the place you're having the trouble?

In login.defs make sure you set "MD_5_CRYPT_ENAB" to "yes" 

DON'T set it to "true" as I did at first; that doesn't work.  There's some
tip file somewhere (maybe even the manual) which says to do that, and it's
just plain wrong.
