Re: scripting problem

Thanks guys,

	learned a lot from this thread, especially from Almut's reaction!

	What I tried to do is copy the encrypted password from /etc/shadow
to newly installed system and kept running into trouble because of the
$'s in the string.

	Finally I thought about

	usermod -p 'encrypted password' username

	which solved the issue. (shame)
