I am going to move over from Solaris 8 to FreeBSD 5.4 but would like to 
keep uid, usernames, and passwords from the Solaris 8 box intact when I 
move them to the FreeBSD box.  Is it just as simple as a copy and paste 
for the passwd file?  Is there any commands I have to run after the copy 
and paste?  Anything need to be done to the master.passwd file?
