summary: Solaris 9 and NP value for passwd

Common consensus is that on Solaris 9 you have to vi the shadow file and
manually take out the encrypted password and insert NP. As the -N option
only came with sol-10, and there is no other option in the password
command to make a no password account.

Thanks for all who offered their opinions.
