I have one of my domains controlled by a RH5.2 server and have no
difficulty changing passwords. I only use the 'compile source from cvs'
method. How can you tell what you are getting if you use an RPM ?

The only problem we experience is that because RH is so obsessive about the
'quality' of its passwords, users report nine out of ten failures ! Always
traced to an 'unsafe' password although that is not obvious to the user.
