Aren't all problems annoying?  :o)   I'd hazard a guess that most people
aren't using NIS and that md5 password are a better default for the
majority.   You're right though, it would be nicer for the installer knew
about the md5 passwd choice before creating root.   Should probably
file a bugzilla report so that this is remembered for future changes
to the installer.
