I work for an organization that currently assigns passwords to all
employees and we are moving over to user created passwords.  As part
of the move, we are wanting to implement a system that will try to
brute force the user passwords (raw-MD5) so that we can disable the
account if it is easily cracked.    

That said, I have used John the Ripper and love it's abilities.  I
 would, however, like to distribute the workload over two or three
systems.  The software I found to do this is Djohn which uses JtR as
it's base.  I have found the system to be a bit under documented for
me. Has anybody used it successfully?  If so, could somebody assist
me in setting up and running the system?
