The real key to passwd crackers is the dictionaries they use for the
bruting. then better, bigger, more inclusive the dict, the more likely you
are to get results.

I strongly agree with Ron, however bigger is not always smarter. You can quite easily make custom rules for JTR that, when combined with previously gained information, can make time fly! But yes, definately, the dictionary is key.
