 Password shadowing on Linux ?

Hi there!
Can you tell me wheather is there any way to shadow my passwd file on Linux ?
I mean small programm or Linux command that puts '*' in /etc/passwd file
in passwd section and stores real passwords in the other file (/etc/shadowed or smth like that).

By the way, don't you thing that's a little bit stupid that every user has
unlimited access to the other users  passwords ?

Thx - Yaro

The shadow suite is on the usual linux FTP sites.  Now that the
licensing confusion has been cleared up I think it's on the major
distributions too.
