Do you mean so the admin can type them in ? Thats not normally the way it
is done. In my case I get new users to type a passwd on my terminal, one by
one. OK if people are going on to the system sporadicly. In a class
situation I get a list of (~300) students, I use a script to add them all
using a random password and then print out sheets with that passwd on it
for each student. They can then change their passwd to something more

There are a number of other stratagies, have a look in the archives for ideas.
