The important parts of both files should be the same, assuming you
used the same crypt mechanism on each (i.e., no MD5 hashes in

Solaris 7 /etc/passwd:

Solaris 7 /etc/shadow:

GNU/Linux (woody) /etc/passwd:

GNU/Linux (woody) /etc/shadow:

The meaning of each number in the shadow file is documented in each

Put the hashes from the Solaris shadow into the Debian shadow, and
they'll have the same password.
