MigrationTools-40 and encrypted passwords

I am working on getting nss and pam ldap working, and am making good progress.  One problem seems to
be when i use these MigrationTools (a collection of perl scripts) to try to move the users from a
machine into the directory, the userPassword entries get stuck in as {crypt}, but somehow that isn't
usable (i can't successfully bind to the server using the password that was set).  Does anyone know
what i might be doing wrong?  Any pointers to documentation on these issues would be appreciated. 
For instance, i'm unsure as to how to determine what encryption method is used on a particular
machine (to create the encrypted hashes in /etc/shadow).  I do know md5 is used because of the $1$
prepended to each entry, but i don't know whether that might be a problem for openldap.   Also, any
pointers to any other tools which might accomplish the same thing (migrate users from a machine to a
directory).  I'm using openldap2.0.23.

	Thank you very much for your time,
