Hello Christian -

If you want to do both CHAP and PAP authentication, your passwords 
*must* be stored in clear text in the database.

If you want to store  encrypted passwords (and only use PAP) you must 
use an external program to do the encryption and then take the 
resulting string and put that into the database.
