    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    Redhat 8.0 has now become so outdated you might not find many people still using it. Your best bet would be to pull out your original install disk and fetch any files that you need from that. Otherwise, it's probably time for a major upgrade.

    Problem is that it is not ordinary redhat server. It is IBM proventia apliance, based on redhat.
    So, yes, I think that the best solution would be, as you sad, to fetch files from install disk.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    The /usr/sbin/htpasswd command is part of the Apache web server suite. You might be able to get the appropriate version from the Apache web site.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    The file is in the package httpd-tools in Fedora's archive repo located here:

    Index of /pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os/Packages

    you can do:
    rpm2cpio < httpd-tools-2.2.6-3.i386.rpm > httpd-tools-2.2.6-3.i386.cpio
    mkdir httpd-tools
    cd httpd-tools
    cpio -idv < ../httpd-tools-2.2.6-3.i386.rpm
    ls -l ./usr/bin/htpasswd

    cpio: premature end of archive

    I got this message. Maybe that rpm file isn't ok. I will search web for the other one. If you know some other source of that file, please let me know.
    Thanks !

    The size of the rpm you downloaded looks right (69721), but I think you skipped a couple steps. you have to run rpm2cpio on the httpd-tools*.rpm file, then run the cpio command on the httpd-tools-*.cpio file that is generated by the previous command. Take a look at the steps again, try again, and post back.

    Ahhhhh, yes, silly me. I was in hurry to try (worst thing to do, but that's me ) . Thanks! Now it is ok. Unzipped. I go on now .... I can't promise that I won't have further questions ...
