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

Default found it

Nevermind. It appears md5 option accepts both types and the format is correct. Thats a really nice feature for migrating from a variety of different systems.
