Hope you are doing fine. I have been trying to finish the challenge for PwnOs V1.0 from De-Ice.net. I have been able to get both the Shadow & Passwd files. Using them with John (Brute Force) will take alot of time. My question, would it be better to use John with Rainbow Tables. (I have the Alphanum32 rainbow tables )
BTW: the encoding of the password is BSD MD5 (32/32)
Thanks in advance,

of course that is better with the Rainbow tables... you can use the rcrack for these procedure.
rcrack *.rt -f <file with hashes>
