This comes from not using md5 passwords, but crypt() passwords. there is a
howto somewhere at http://www.susesecurity.com/faq/
ah, I just read it:

How do I enable MD5 Password Encryption
The documentation to enable MD5 password encryption is in
/usr/share/doc/packages/pam/md5.config on your SuSE 7 machine.
