I've written a script to process a complex import of users from one system into wordpress. The only part I'm having issue with is generating each users password, as from the database they don't' appear to be straight MD5 hashes of passwords.

Can anyone shed any light on the correct way to generate passwords?

Are they concatenated salt and hashes?
