Please put these types of requests in bugzilla.  You can't assign the 
students a new password.  If fact, once their passwords are assigned, 
only the students and domain coordinator can change it.  You could have 
just clicked on Kerberos authentication and it would have worked fine - 
what we normally do at MSU.  This feedback belongs as a bug/enhancement.

If the student already had a password and you didn't know it, you could 
just put in some dummy space-holder, like "password", for those 
students.  You can't change their initial password anyway.
