I don't _know_ about Linux, but it might be possible, but nontrivial.

In OpenBSD you do have a chioce with the algorithm you use, blowfish is
just the default. I think MD5 is also one of the chioces, and I think
you can edit the adduser script/adduser.conf for that.

Another thing that occurs to me is that there is a way to transfer
passwords from Linux to OpenBSD, it's in the FAQ, take a look at that,
it might help you.

I can recommend tha mailinglist misc@openbsd.org too, they are generally
very helpfull and knowledgeable about such things.


UNIX, reach out and grep someone!
