Even though this is almost never a legitimate question, this information is freely available, so here goes...

Try downloading l0phtcrack from http://www.l0pht.com and run it against the passwd file that you have.  A cracker is the only way, since UNIX passwords are encrypted using a one-way encryption scheme, for "security".

Enjoy your system-cracking...
