No, it does not. shadow support is in the libc shipped with RH. If you
want MD5 passwords, this is another story.

There used to be a libcrypt package in contrib at RH, package done by me
and uploaded by somebody else without my permission, but the fact is
consumed. Or go to ftp://sysadm.sorosis.ro/pub/devel/shadow and grab
libcrypt RPM from there. Then change the pppd source to use pw_encrypt()
instead of crypt() when verifying the user password and link it with
libcrypt.a (only static lib provided... you don't need a .so for only one

UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
