ARGHH!!! SSH is a neccessity here! It used to work without Shadow
Passwords under RedHat 4.0 and 4.1. I guess this means that I have to go
back to using Non-Shadowed passwords!

Also, something else that I have noticed is that pam_cracklib is a little
too forgiving. If you enter something that it finds in the dictionary, it
will spit out "Bad Password - Found in dictionary" and then prompt you for
confirmation of the password. If you confirm it it goes ahead and changes

Anyone else have this experience? I can live without shadowed passwords if
I can use an anal cracklib w/ 80 megs of dictionaries.

Is pam_cracklib configurable at all? How?
