FR & Unix pws

I am using FreeRADIUS v1.0.5 in a non-production lab environment. I am
using the group and passwd files for RADIUS authentication. I'm not
using the standard ones, but copies that I have created just for
FreeRADIUS and stored in another directory (so it doesn't interfere with
regular systems administration).

What hashing algorithm is used to store passwords in passwd?

Does FreeRADIUS have an option to read passwords in clear text?

Is there an easy way to create hashed passwords from some Unix
command-line utility?

Thanks for your time!
