I know this has been covered before, but the search mechanism

I've got a 5.3 system and a 6.2 system.  I want to migrate the user
accounts from the 5.3 to the 6.2.  They use different encryption
mechanisms for the password in master.password.

Other that running a cracker, is there a way to upconvert the
old to the new?

Simply running mergemaster (part of the recommended upgrade errata) should do the trick, as it will prompt you to execute some commands to 'upgrade' the password database and other relevant databases.
