Default Condition of MD5 passwords as of 2.2.2

Hello.
I've noticed that by default regular DES passwords are used in /etc/shadow.
If I change the "password_hash" option to md5 in config.inc.php:
Will ISPConfig recognize both types of passwords?
Are the md5 passwords now (as of 2.2.2) in the form of:
$1$xxxxxxxx$xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
?
My php skills are novice at best and don't trust them to issues of authentication at this point. After reading the posts below I assume all the answers to these questions are yes, but wanted to make sure.

Thanks,
rustin
