Read the list-archives..
We had this discussions already a LOT times..
And until Solar will include a tool for it they wont end.. I think :)

You need to remove the syskey and then dump the Passwords into a File.

bkhive (unsyskey) and pwdump3 (unsam) or 4 can do it.
The output of this stuff can be handled by john.
