Migrating users from Linux

Still in the process of migrating all my Linux servers to FreeBSD, I'm
now trying to move out a couple of thousands users created in a twenty
years timespan from a linux server.
Of course I need to keep uid and gid, though the juicy part is...
the passwords! I have them only in encrypted form and in different
algorythms (DES, Blowfish, ...) and the happily coexist. Con they
be used as they are in Freebsd?

Thanks a lot again,
