SHA, MD5, LDAP for passwords

I have a server authenticating against a Netscape/SunONE directory and it works fine, but when a user uses the passwd command to change passwords, the hash sent to the directory doesn't match what the user types.

PW in the LDAP direcotry is unkown, because hash is SHA
Linux uses MD5....

Can I make Linux use md5?

Any other solutions?
