Not going to happend (except for possibly a dictionary cracker)
Easiest to do is to have Samba update the passwords (look at smb.conf manpage
and David Bannons FAQs at www.samba.org look under documentation
BTW: samba stores encrypted passwords in the NT Hash for encrypted
authentification and cannot use /etc/passwd encryption.
(unless encrypted passwords = no, which gives you more problems.
again: The FAQs)
