Sorry.... in suse 6.3 the MD5_CRYPT_ENAB doesn't appear in /etc/login.defs and if you enable it, suse doesn't seem to change passwords to MD5... I think
this feature has been removed. (in suse 6.1 i obtained md5 passwd sucessfully)

I think was removed for security, MD5 is an algorithm that has collisions, however DES does not undergo problems of collisions, although it is "in theory easy to crack" by brute force.
