I did this recently (using a 1.1.59 kernel), and if I recall correctly, I
had to change all the passwords on the system using the new "passwd"
program. This changed the password, and put the new password in the
shadow password file. (I think I was even able to "change" them to the
same thing, but I don't recall exactly.) Of course, I did this for the
accounts I have control over, and told everyone else on the system to
change their password _now_.
I also had problems with the syslog file, which was fixed by deleting the
old one, and letting the new shadow-system start over.
Now, all this was done a couple of months ago, in a state of frenzy, so I
may have missed a step or two, or mis-remembered something, so don't take
this as gospel. But I hope this helps.
Leave my nose alone please
