I found this while poking around. Since you need to "replciate" the new password functionality on a mySQL box that is using the olde password function, you'll have to roll your own password hashing routine.

"PASSWORD() is just a double SHA-1 hash"
"in both PHP and MySQL native there are direct SH1() functions"



Hope this helps.
