Hi Nicole,

I found the answers to your question for Redhat on google groups.  See
the q=[...]& part of the queries below to see what I searched for.

   Redhat 4.0 had bits in place for future MD5 passwords.

   Redhat 4.1 had beta support for MD5 passwords.

   Redhat 4.2 had full support for MD5 passwords.
