    yo don't decrypt passwords
    its a one way trip
    encrypt the users password,using what ever mode you choose to use (could use a front end function or an internal MySQL encryption function
    when you request a password repeat the encryption process and compare the encrypted values. providing you use the same method to encrypt then there is no problems
    storing passwords in a db in clear is a bad move
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
