    First of all thanks to all who answered my question regarding
automating the passwd command.

Among those who answered, everyone seemed to agree that I need to do
this with an "expect" script.
In the process of finding and downloading "expect" I ran across some
perl modules that may do the
same thing. Anyways thanks for the responses and Im going to give them
both a try.
