Shadow Passwords

I need to install shadow passwording.  Where is the best
place to get the latest shadow suite from?  Also, I know
certain system programs will not work with shadow passwords,
are there replacements for all of them.   Finally, the only
nonstandard software I'm running is Apache, Samba, bind, and
sendmail 8.8.5.  I know Samba can be recompiled with shadow
support, but am not sure if the others need it or if it matters.

You can get the lstesr version at:
ftp://i17linuxb.ists.pwr.wroc.pl/pub/linux/shadow/shadow-
current.tar.gz. Replacement programs are included. Don't know if your other programs will have a problem. You can get info at

I found the site and the shadow suite installed ok.  The
documentation wasn't exactly matched to the install but I
made it through.  For others though, I found out later
that Slackware Linux 3.2 from ftp.cdrom.com comes with
shadow passwords by default.
