Why?! I think it's simpler and more efficient to treat the known password as salt, and the unknown salt as password being cracked, so that JtR's builtin cracking modes can be used to attack the salt instead of the password. Once a match is found, switch the password/salt back in their proper order so that other (unknown) passwords can be cracked with the now-known salt. Alexander
