That's not really up to the book. Also, have you tried the newest shadow 
password suite? The book still uses the one released in 1999, but a newer 
version has been released last August (2.5.1 will be using it). Perhaps those 
docs are more up to date?

Also, try

and search on "shadow MD5" and you'll be able to read some emails on this
