This would not work, because the unix-password are encrypted by an
one-way-hash funktion. With today's computers it's NOT possible to get the
clear-text password from the /etc/passwd or /etc/shadow file, no is it
possible to convert the password to the encryption used by WIndows.
However, you could patch the passwd programm, so that it saves the
clear-text or windows-encrypted password somewhere. This could than be
used for printing. If you are really concerned about security, you should
not do this, because the encryption used by windows is known to be weak.
