Password Lengths



I have these versions:
passwd-0.50-7
util-linux-2.5-38
pam-0.57-2
pwdb-0.54-3

And I want root's password to be longer than 8 characters.  Some of my users
already have passwords longer than 8 characters:

/etc/shadow:
root:XXXXXXXXXXXXX:9991:-1:-1:-1:-1:-1:0
tim:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX:9970:-1:-1:-1:-1:-1:-1073743160

How can I get root's to be longer?  I changed root's password to something
long, but only the first 8 characters matter...
