Bypassing htpasswd program?

I need to have certain areas of my web page restricted to only people with valid usernames and passwords.  I will need many unique usernames.

I know how to accomplish what I want, but my ISP will not allow me to run the htpasswd program.  I want to know if there is anyway to bypass using the htpasswd in creating usernames and encrypted passwords?

Is there a program that I can use offline that will encrypt the passwords for me and then I can just upload the password file?  If I understand correctly, the htpasswd program encrypts in unix crypt format... Is there any Windows program that encrypts in the same format?

I have tried just uuencoding the passwords, but that doesn't seem to work at all.  Is there anyway to do this?

Thanks,

You can get the "Crack-x.y" distribution, which is a Unix password cracker. In this distribution, there is fcrypt.c, a  C
program that implements a faster crypt than the original unix one. Just recompile this under windows (this is really standard C) and voila ! you have your password encoder !

if you can't find it, I'll dig my adress book for you.
