encrypting the password

Today, I’ve tested HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile Method
of the FormsAuthentication class; it’s very interesting if you don’t want to store the password in clear text in the database or in the config file; when the user provides his password,
you can hash it with this method (MD5 ou SAH1 algorithm) and compare the recently hashed value against the stored hashed value.
