Hi all,

I find the right "passwd chat"-option for SUSE-LINUX (7.2)
See below


encrypt passwords = yes
unix password sync = yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u 
passwd chat = *New*password:* %n\n *Re-enter*new*password:* %n\n \              

Don't forget the spaces between the arguments !!!!!!!!!!!!!
