In my experience, SuSE by default installs DES encryption for passwords,
whereas RH uses MD5. But after install, you can switch the SuSE to MD5
(using YaST), and any DES passwords will still work, although new ones
will be encrypted with MD5. And I'd expect previous encrypted MD5
passwords to work also once you've switched SuSE to MD5; did you try
